Who cares? We saw one last night!

Last night, Ben Scrivens and the Toronto Marlies eliminated the Rochester Americans. Although each game was a relatively close affair, Toronto shut out the Americans 3-0 in the third and decisive game.

Jeffler at Marlies HQ has a recap:

The final frame had something in common with the previous ones, and that was the fact that included a very early Marlies goal. This one came from Nazem Kadri, and it was the highlight of the game. Coming out of the box, Kadri joined the ever so common Scott/D’Amigo shorthanded rush, took in a pass, and dangled his way around Leggio to widen the gap to three. The Amerks pulled the goalie, but it was of no help. Ben Scrivens kept saving, the Marlies kept their composure, and the series ended as the clock hit zero.
