Marlies Set to Close out Doubleheader in Winnipeg
The Marlies and Moose close out their back-to-back mini series today in a Saturday matinee at Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg.
With a win over the Moose last night the Marlies made it two straight to start out the season, while the Moose dropped their second of three games. They'll be looking to pick up their first win on home ice today in what's bound to be another close fought battle.
After recording the first goal in consecutive games, Egor Korshkov leads the Marlies in goals, while Jeremy Bracco leads in points with four assists through two games. Tyler Gaudet scored the game-winning goal at 1:44 of the third period on a delayed penalty. Last night marked Gaudet's 300th career AHL game and his fifth game-winning goal. Toronto was 3-for-3 on the penalty kill and was 0-for-3 on the power play.
"We're just continuing to learn," said head coach Sheldon Keefe following yesterday's game. "It certainly was not a complete game by any means by us. But we found a way to win again, there were a lot of good things in the third period that we're going to have to build on for tomorrow."
The Marlies will look to extend their streak to three straight and head home for Thanksgiving.
Puck drops at 3PM ET on AHLTV. Fans can also follow along on Twitter for live updates.
