Last Game, Marlies: Toronto lost to Albany 3-1 at Air Canada Centre Saturday afternoon.
The Marlies are without their leading scorer, Brendan Leipsic, due to injury; this is the first visit by the Devils to Ricoh Coliseum since their Game 7 loss to Toronto in last season’s division finals in May; this is the Marlies’ last game until after Christmas, they host St. John’s on December 26th; Josh Jacobs was reassigned to Albany Saturday after making one appearance for Adirondack; if Ken Appleby was qualified–he’s currently just under 3 minutes short–he would rank fifth in the AHL in goals against average (1.88).
