Cleveland Monsters , 6-3-1-0, 13 points, .650 win%, 2nd North, 4th East


Toronto Marlies, 4-4-0-1, 9 points, .500 win%, 4th North, 8th East

The Toronto Marlies are coming into Cleveland on a hot streak. After starting the season 1-3-0-0, the Marlies are on a four game point streak (3-0-0-1) and hoping to extend it against the Cleveland Monsters.

The Marlies are out for blood after the Monsters ruined their banner raising. As we all know a ruined banner raising leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

Calle Rosen and Trevor Moore need to be stopped at all costs. They aren't afraid to shoot at the net from anywhere on the ice. Leave them open and the Monsters will regret it.

Cleveland needs to score fast and often. The Marlies defense s a bit slow and get extremely overwhelmed when multiple goals are scored within minutes of each other.

Monsters need to roll lines and special teams units tonight. The best way to play a full 60 minutes of hockey is to not tire out your top six.
