The Bulldogs take on the Marlies tonight in the second game in a home-and-home series at Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto, Ontario. Last night, Robert Mayer stole the show as he stopped 39 of 40 shots and made some stellar saves to keep the Bulldogs in it early after the Marlies outshot the Bulldogs 16-6 in the first period.

Louis Leblanc had 2G, Patrick Holland notched his first professional goal as well as adding an assist, and Aaron Palushaj also had 1G, 1A. You can read more about last nights game in our game recap.

Tonight's Bulldogs lineup remains unchanged from last night.


Steven Quailer - Blake Geoffrion - Brendan Gallagher
Aaron Palushaj - Michael Bournival - Patrick Holland
Michael Blunden - Darryl Boyce - Louis Leblanc
Kyle Hagel - Gabriel Dumont - Zack Stortini


Jarred Tinordi - Greg Pateryn
Nathan Beaulieu - Frederic St-Denis
Antoine Corbin - Brendan Nash


Robert Mayer
Peter Delmas

Scratches: Avtsin, Berger, Nattinen, Ellis


The Marlies, however, have made some changes to their lineup:


Ryan Hamilton - Keith Aucoin - Nicolas Deschamps
Leo Komarov - Joe Colborne - Mike Zigomanis
Nazem Kadri - Greg McKegg - Greg Scott
Carter Ashton - Will Acton - Kenny Ryan


Jake Gardiner - Mike Kostka
Mark Fraser - Korbinian Holzer
Dylan Yeo - Jesse Blacker


Jussi Rynnas
Mark Owuya

Notable changes:

  • Kadri and Zigomanis both get demoted by a line. Kadri showed some frustration last night in being unable to solve Mayer.
  • Kenny Ryan draws into the Marlies lineup for the first time this year.
  • Jussi Rynnas gets his first start, and Mark Owuya backs up his first AHL game.

The game will broadcast live on Sportsnet One, as well as TVA Sports in Quebec. If you don't have Sportsnet, you can watch or listen to the Bulldogs take on the Marlies live tonight at 7pm EST through AHL Live here or listen on the radio here
