Last season the Amerks were 3-4-3-0 against the Marlies, and 1-2-2-0 at home.  In their first meeting of the season the Marlies beat the Amerks by a score of 3-1.Will tonight be a repeat of the Amerks’ performance against the Rampage? Or will they rebound and show us that they aren’t bad at hockey? After the jump you’ll find an assortment of statistics.

Several Amerks are also still injured. That list includes Corey Tropp, Cody Hodgson, Matt MacKenzie, Zemgus Girgensons, and Kevin Sundher. According to Kevin Oklobzija, Luke Adam will likely be playing tonight. The Amerks are a little beat up right now, but that is no excuse for their performance against the Rampage on Wednesday night. The Marlies and the Amerks are relatively even at this point in the season, but let’s hope that the Amerks rebound from Wednesday.

I’ll be in my usual seat (Section 114, Row G, Seat 13), so feel free to stop by and have an awkward conversation. Either that or creep me from afar, whichever you prefer.

Tonight’s game song is “Weather the Strom” by Insomnium.

In Rolston we trust.
