Saturday’s win over the St. John’s IceCaps give the Marlies 89 points on the season. Although the Texas Stars have a game in hand over Toronto, they’re both tied for the conference’s top spot.
Of the 19 Marlies that touched the ice, nine of them were rookies. Pretty fancy, huh? Rookie goalie, rookie defencemen, and even an all-rookie forward line.
And the rookies put on a show. Check it for yourself.
