Tonight’s game is big for a lot of reasons, so hear are six points to keep in mind:

  • With a victory, the Marlies win streak could be extended to six – a feat that has not been accomplished since March 30 – April 8 last season
  • A Toronto win and a Grand Rapids loss would move the Marlies into the conference’s second spot
  • Marlies are without smooth skating defenceman Jake Gardiner and captain Ryan Hamilton, as both have been recalled to the Maple Leafs
  • Joining the Marlies on assignment are rear guards Korbinian Holzer and Mike Komisarek (#2), as well as 2012 draft pick Morgan Rielly (#44)
  • The Wolves present sit seventh and have lost three straight and five of their last six
  • For all the action, tune into AHL Live starting at 8:30 EST

    Can`t wait to see Rielly in the pros. Watched a ton of Moose Jaw this year and he was exceptional in the dub.

    Was looking forward to seeing Hamilton play with the Leafs last night but apparently Carlyle had other ideas.
    I will never understand bringing the young man up if you are just going to have him st on the bench, when he otherwise could be skating tonight.
