Powered By AJHLers Toronto Marlies Take Game 1 of AHL West Final

Friday, May 18th 2012 07:00

The Marlies may be the farm team for the NHL's Toronto Maple Leafs but they look more like a feeder network for the Alberta Junior Hockey League right now. Significant contributions to their Calder Cup run are being made by Albertans.

With 4 ex-AJHLers in their line-up - including Olds' Jay Rosehill - the Toronto Marlies defeated Oklahoma City 5 to nothing on the road to win game one of the American Hockey League's West Final.

Former Calgary Canuck Ben Scrivens made 31 saves to earn the shut-out, while ex-Fort Saskatchewan Trader Matt Frattin netted a goal.

Camrose Kodiak alumni Joe Colborne also contributed by scoring his first professional playoff goal.

Game 2 is tonight in Oklahoma City.

In the East, Norfolk whipped St. John's 6-1 to grab a 1 to nothing series lead.
