Happy weekend everyone!
Friday night was a great night for Toronto Maple Leafs prospects as Egor Korshkov and Joseph Duszak scored their first points in last night’s Marlies game as they defeated the Cleveland Monsters 4-3 in overtime and took a 2-0 series lead.

Down a level in the ECHL the Newfoundland Growlers lost to the Manchester Monarchs 2-1 in overtime but are still leading the series 3-2. The teams go back to St. John’s to decide who will move on to the Eastern Conference final, and will most likely take on last season’s Kelly Cup runners-up Florida Everblades who are on track to rob us of a Growlers / Solar Bears ECF.
In prospect playoffs, the Guelph Storm are in Ottawa today for game two of the OHL Championship Series, and are down 1-0 in the series. This isn’t a problem for the Storm who came back from 3-0 and 3-1 deficits in their last two playoff series. Out west the Prince Albert Raiders lost to the Vancouver Giants in the opening game of the WHL Finals last night.
