A goal and an assist from Brendan Leipsic — extending his points streak to three games, with four goals and seven points in those three games — along with goals from Connor Brown and Sam Carrick sent the Marlies to a 3-1 win over Rochester in the first game of a back to back.

Three players who look to have NHL futures, and all good news for the Marlies if they can keep this up and secure a playoff berth over their remaining five games. The Marlies are now eighth place in the Western Conference, inside the playoff cut.

TJ Brennan added two assists, taking him to nine points in his last five games as the re-acquisition has gone as planned. Christopher Gibson picked up his 22nd win of the season after stopping 21 of 22 shots.
