The Marlies are playing to stay in the Calder Cup Playoffs race tonight against the Syracuse Crunch. The Marlies are down 3-2 in the series, with tonight’s game at Ricoh Coliseum, and a game seven, if necessary, in Syracuse. They have to win both after a blowout 5-1 loss to the Crunch on Saturday.

Meanwhile the Stanley Cup Playoffs continue with an Eastern Conference game tonight between the Rangers and Senators. Last night the Ducks edged out the Predators 5-3 in a game that was extremely close right up to the end of the third period.

Across the pond, the World Championships continue. Canada is playing Norway starting at 10:30am. It’s been a busy weekend, especially for William Nylander. You can catch up on this weeks schedule, and our favourite Maple Leafs’ activities.
