Marlies and Senators Meet for Sunday Showdown
The Battle of Ontario comes back to Coca-Cola Coliseum today as the Marlies host the Belleville Senators for their ninth meeting of the regular season.
The Senators have been a tough opponent for the Marlies this season with half of their meetings needing an extra time decision. After edging the Marlies 7-6 in overtime on February 5th, the Senators took a 5-3 lead in the season series.
Both teams are coming off wins last night, the Marlies a 4-2 win over Springfield and Belleville a 6-3 win over Laval. Six points separate these North Division rivals in the division standings, with the Marlies currently sitting third and the Senators sitting fifth.
Players to watch: Adam Brooks registered two points in last night's win, including the game winner. He now has 20 points in 35 games. Chris Mueller leads the Marlies with 49 points and has recorded eight points in his last five games. He currently sits third in points and fourth in goals scored amongst AHL skaters. With two assists last night, Jeremy Bracco is now back atop the league in assists with 34. He is tied for first in assists with Chicago's Daniel Carr.
Puck drops at 4:00 PM on Leafs Nation Network, TSN 2 and AHLTV. Fans can follow us on Twitter and Instagram for behind-the-scenes action from Coca-Cola Coliseum.
