The Toronto Marlies can sweep the Syracuse Crunch with a win tonight. In last season’s Calder Cup Playoffs they were eliminated by the Crunch when they couldn’t win any games on the road in Syracuse. On Monday, the Marlies flipped last year’s results and blew up the Crunch with a decisive 7-1 victory on the road.
The Marlies had a well earned day out in the warm sunny weather on their day off Monday, playing some football, frisbee, and soccer in Syracuse.
Tonight’s game is at 7:00 PM. We’ll be watching the game and posting updates on Twitter with a recap to follow. Let’s hope they wrap it up tonight and get down to the serious business of the Eastern Conference final.
