Toronto Marlies, 7-7-2-2, 18 points, .500 win%, 7th North, 15th East

For the third time in six days, the Cleveland Monsters and Toronto Marlies will faceoff. They split the games after pushing both of them into over time.

The Marlies still have a sour taste in their mouth after the Monsters spoiled their banner raising at the start of this season. So, they won't go down without a fight.

Player to Watch

Mason Marchment is on fire right now. In the past two games, he's notched three goals and an assist. One of those goals was the overtime game winner on Friday. Recently, Marchment has been able to find a way to get open without any of the Monsters realizing it. A big key for tonight's game is staying on Marchment the whole game. The moment he's out of the Monsters sight he will likely score or set up a score.

Monsters Bench

There are a lot of players lighting it up against the Marlies. However, there are two who have shone bright in the past two meetings. Sonny Milano and Mark Letestu have been clutch in the most important moments of the game.Milano has elevated his game away from the puck by laying nice hits to open up lanes. He's even set up a few great plays including the overtime game winner on Sunday which Letestu scored. Speaking of Letestu, he's been a dream to have on a struggling special teams.

The Other Bench

The Monsters are having a hard time cracking Eamon McAdams. If they can get past the Marlies defense, McAdams is there to foil their goal attempts. If they can crack this nut, the Monsters will have a successful night.
