AHL Western Conference semifinals

Toronto Marlies / Abbotsford Heat

Game 1 of the AHL Western Conference semifinals kicks off this evening with a well rested Toronto Marlies taking on the Abbotsford Heat. With the Marlies fresh off a sweep of division rivals, the Rochester Americans, they will need all the rest they can get. Should the series go beyond 5 games, both teams will have traveled across the country 3 times between Ontario and British Columbia. The series will be a 2-3-2 setup, with the Marlies having home ice advantage.

The Marlies went 2-1-1 against the Heat this season, but the Heat have won the team’s two most recent meetings.

But Toronto Marlies head coach Dallas Eakins says he won’t make too many changes to the team’s gameplan.
