(GDT) Chicago Wolves @ Toronto Marlies - 2/9/13, 12:00PM PST


Recommended Posts

It's the 2nd game of a back to back against Eastern teams today, this time against the Maple Leafs farm team, the Toronto Marlies. The Marlies have a near identical record to that of the Wolves, except they have one more win and the Wolves have one more OT loss. They were a great team last year but several of their key players, including Kadri, Frattin, Kostka, Holzer and Scrivens, are now with the Leafs so they're significantly weaker.

The Wolves are in a similar situation to that of the Canucks in that they have two great goaltenders in Climie and Cannata who can give them a chance to win every game, so whether it's Climie again today or Cannata the Wolves should be the favourites.

The lineup should be the same as it was in yesterday's game and it is as follows:

Sweatt - Gordon - Haydar

Archibald - Longpre - Rodin

Miller - Kattelus - Desbiens

DiDiomete - Friesen - Davies

Joslin - Andersson

Matheson - Connauton

Vandermeer - Polasek


* I wouldn't be surprised if Hunt slots back into the lineup in favour of Polasek or Vandermeer, though.

Again, the guys calling the Wolves game are too busy lamenting about the Marlies coach's days as a Wolf that they don't even mention the starting line and defense pairing. By the time the guy starts calling the game, the Wolves are into their 2nd or even 3rd shift.
