Marlies Return to Coca-Cola Coliseum
After a successful two-game road trip to Laval, the Marlies return to home ice today to host the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.
This marks the first of two meetings between these two teams this season, and the Marlies will have their work cut out for them against a hot Bridgeport team. The Sound Tigers had a seven-game win streak snapped on Friday by the Rochester American and have won eight of their past 10. They currently sit second in the Atlantic Division and fourth in the Eastern Conference with 77 points.
The Marlies come home riding a three-game win streak and are fresh off back-to-back wins in Laval. They've won seven of their past 10 and currently sit third in the North Division and fifth in the Eastern Conference with 73 points, just four points back of the fourth place Sound Tigers.
Players to watch: After registering a power play goal on Friday, Michael Carcone has now recorded nine points in his last eight games. Jeremy Bracco has 10 points in his last 10 games and continues to lead the AHL in assists with 43. Chris Bourque has five points in his last six games and leads the Sound Tigers with 46 points (13 goals, 33 assists).
Puck drops at 4:00 PM on Leafs Nation Network, AHLTV and the NHL Network. Fans in Ontario can also stream the game live in the Maple Leafs App.
