Marlies acquired Ryan Lasch in a trade that saw the Maple Leafs part ways with David Steckel, Lasch will wear #45
Joe Colborne has four points in the past five games
Ryan Hamilton is only five goals away from hitting the 30 goal plateau for the first time ...

Toronto vs Rochester - Will Acton

Here are six thoughts relating to tonight’s game:

Toronto has lost only one of six meetings against the Americans this season
Marlies are only one point out of first of the North division, which would vault them into third place in the conference

Rochester has three players (Porter, Mancari, Brennan) with 35 or more points, two of which are over 40
The Americans have only a single win in their last five
Tune into all the action starting at 7pm on Rogers TV ...
