Marlies Road Swing Continues in Lehigh

March 16, 2019 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Toronto Marlies News Release

The Toronto Marlies continue their three-game road swing with a stop in Lehigh tonight to take on the Phantoms. This marks the second and final regular season meeting between these two teams, with Lehigh holding a 1-0 lead in the season series.

The Marlies are fresh off an overtime win over the Hershey Bears last night and will be looking to even up their season series against the Phantoms and extend their win streak to two. The Phantoms have been on a bit of a slide and have dropped their past three and seven of their last 10. They'll be looking to snap their losing streak and get back in the win column on home ice tonight.

Players to watch: Chris Mueller returned to the Marlies lineup last night and registered the game winning goal in overtime. He has points (six goals, five assists) in seven consecutive games and leads the Marlies with 25 goals. Jeremy Bracco recorded three points in last night's contest, extending his point-streak to three consecutive games. He continues to lead the Marlies with 65 points in 62 games, and leads the AHL with 47 assists. Rasmus Sandin recorded two assists last night in Hershey, bringing his point-streak (one goal, six assists) to seven consecutive games. Phantoms' forward Greg Carey scored a goal and an assist in last night's game against Laval. He leads Lehigh with 56 points (26 goals, 30 assists).
