Rematch With Albany

Toronto Marlies
February 12, 2017

Following a 5-4 overtime defeat Saturday night, the Marlies return to the ice Sunday afternoon for a rematch with the Devils.

The Marlies [23-21-3-1] jumped out to a quick start Saturday night that they will look to repeat in this afternoon's contest. Eric Faille, Byron Froese and Travis Dermott all scored in the opening period for the Marlies, who picked up a point in the loss.

With his first period goal, Froese extended his scoring streak to four games. He has picked up nine points (5G, 4A) in that span and leads the Marlies in scoring with 22 goals on the season.

Seth Griffith had a pair of assists last night and enters this afternoon's game on a 10 game point streak. He has recorded a point in every game he's played since joining the Marlies, with 15 points (3G, 12A) in that span.

The Devils [28-20-1-1] were led offensively by Ben Sexton, who scored twice in the third period to send last night's game overtime. He leads Albany in scoring on the season.

Heading in to today's divisional battle, the Devils hold the second spot in the North Division and the Marlies are in third. Toronto sits eight points back of Albany with two games in hand.

Puck drop is scheduled for 3:00 at Ricoh Coliseum. You can catch all of the action on TSN2 and AHL Live, or by following the Marlies on Twitter and tuning in to our #MarliesLive chat. Tickets are still available.
