Marlies Open 3-In-3 Weekend Tonight in Rochester

November 29, 2019 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Toronto Marlies News Release

The Toronto Marlies open up a 3-in-3 weekend tonight with a visit to Rochester to take on the Americans.

The Americans (12-3-1-2) are off to a hot start and have a 7-1-1-1 record in their previous 10 games. Jean-Sebastien Dea leads the way for Rochester with 13 points (7 goals, 6 assists) through 18 games.

While the Marlies remain undefeated on home ice, their record when playing away from the Coliseum is not quite as pristine. With a 4-2-2-1 record on the road so far this season, the Marlies will definitely be looking to carry the momentum from their recent five-game home stand into tonight's game. Toronto set a new franchise record on Sunday following their ninth consecutive home win.

It's bound to be a good one as the two division leaders meet for the first time since Toronto swept Rochester in the North Division Semifinals of the 2019 Calder Cup Playoffs. When asked about tonight's challenge, Marlies' assistant coach A.J. MacLean commented, "they play fast, they forecheck well, they're very dangerous in all areas of the ice," adding, "it's definitely a challenge going down there and facing this team. We're going to have to be sharp and ready to go."

Puck drops at 7:05 PM on AHLTV. Fans can also follow along on Twitter (@TorontoMarlies) for game updates.
