The Toronto Marlies (37-19-2-3) host the Milwaukee Admirals (29-21-6-6) this afternoon at Ricoh Coliseum for their second and final match-up of the season. The last time these two teams met was on January 21st in Milwaukee, where the Marlies fell to the Admirals 3-2.
The Admirals are in the middle of a four-game road trip and are coming off of a 4-2 loss to the Hamilton Bulldogs last night in Hamilton. The loss ended a four-game win streak against the Bulldogs for the Admirals dating back to 2012.
The Marlies last hit the ice on Wednesday in Cleveland where they defeated the Lake Erie Monsters 4-3 in the shootout. Garret Sparks stopped all four shooters he faced and Spencer Abbott had two assists in the victory.
