The 9-6-0-1 Marlies (5th in the Western Conference) are in Wilkes Barre tonight to play the Penguins (7 p.m., AHL Live) before heading to Hershey for a 5 p.m. puck drop tomorrow.
From Clayton Hansler:
Ben Scrivens is to get the nod in goal marking the netminderâ€™s fifth straight start. Other lineup changes could see Korbinian Holzer and Greg McKegg draw out of the lineup as Simon Gysbers and Kenny Ryan are rotated in.

The Toronto Marlies (2-2-1) play, guess who, the Hamilton Bulldogs (2-2-0) again tonight in their third of 12 meetings this season after splitting their back to back with the Habs' affiliate last weekend.

The NHL said f*ck you and dumped us, knowing we'll take it back later Who needs the NHL? The Marlies are back and with their new jerseys look more like the Leafs than ever before.
The Marlies drop the puck on their 2012-13 campaign at 5 p.m. this afternoon. Joe Bowen and the gang will be calling the game on Sportsnet One. Their opponent is the Rochester Americans, who are playing their second game in under 24 hours after beating the Syracuse Crunch 6-5 last night. The defending Western Conference champions should be fired up for their home opener, hopefully giving us an edge heading into this one.

Here's your super-rushed GDT as the Marlies enter Thursday night action looking to even their AHL Western Conference Semifinal series at one game a piece. I'm honoured to be representing MLHS (alongside @APetrielli, if he ever shows up) in the Ricoh press box this evening, and in lieu of having any better ideas, I might turn this post into a sort of live-blog of the game.
So, by all means - settle in for the game and Shift+F5 your way to entertainment.

Professional playoff hockey is back in Toronto for the first time since 2009 as theÂ Toronto Marlies begin their Calder Cup bid tonight with Game 1 of their Western Conference Quarterfinal series against the Â Rochester Americans.
The Marlies will have Jake Gardiner and Matt Frattin in the lineup tonight, but those NHL additions are matched by the Amerks' inclusion of Marcus Foligno, Brayden McNabb and T.J. Brennan, who all finished the season with the Buffalo Sabres. The Marlies have also added St. Michael's Majors defenceman and first round selection of 2011 Stuart Percy to the blueline for the playoffs.
The feisty Foligno put up an incredible six goals and seven assists in his first 14 games as an NHL'er and could be a physical and offensive force to be reckoned with for the Marlies in this series. Meanwhile, the NHL's best rookie defenceman this season, Jake Gardiner, will be expected to be a two-way stud for the Marlies throughout these playoffs.
The North Division rivals have played each other tight all season. TheÂ Marlies took seven of the ten regular season meetings, but each game was decided by just a goal as the Marlies outscored Rochester by a 27-23 margin. A low scoring season series suggests the goaltending battle between Ben Scrivens, who posted the AHL's best goals against average this season, and Amerks netminder David Leggio will be an especially key matchup in the series.
