Well this seems awfully familiar, doesn’t it? Marlies roll into Rochester, up 2-0 in the series looking to close out strong. The team has seen great performances from their netminder and a bearded gentleman wearing #29 on his sweater while being supported by great numbers at Ricoh Coliseum. Yes, this does seem mighty familiar.

The Marlies are guaranteed the second spot in the West regardless of how this game ends.
