Yes, the Marlies started the final series for the Calder Cup last night, but unfortunately lost 3-1. Ben Scrivens stopped 39 of 41 shots, and, by most accounts, was Toronto's best player.

Over at the Leafs Nation, Andrey Osadchenko has a preview of the series, just in case you're not sure what to expect from the Norfolk Admirals. They're a very, very good team.

Jeffler has a recap of the game at Marlies HQ, as well as a few notes. Also, here's the post-game reaction from Dallas Eakins via the Marlies website. The Game In Six is available here.
