TORONTO —The Toronto Marlies are one win away from a rare Calder Cup final
appearance. Wholesale NFL Jerseys China . Ben Scrivens
made 30 saves as Toronto shut out the Oklahoma City Barons 3-0 on Wednesday
night. The Marlies now have a 3-1 series lead in the American Hockey League
Western Conference final. The winner will face the Norfolk Admirals, who won the
Eastern Conference final in a four-game sweep of the St. Johns IceCaps. The club
has not reached the Calder Cup final since moving to Toronto at the start of the
2005-06 season. In fact, the franchise, which started in St. Catharines, Ont.,
in 1982, has only reached the final once. The St. Johns Maple Leafs lost the
1992 final in seven games to the Adirondack Red Wings. The Marlies won despite
not having two of their top scorers, Mike Zigomanis and Nazem Kadri, in the
lineup. Both sat out with an injury. “So many guys stepped up for us tonight,”
said Scrivens, who signed with Toronto as a college free agent in 2010. “We had
a few guys banged up… and thats what we needed—everybody buying in and
pulling on the rope in the same direction. Thats the way we can play when were
on the same page.” Scrivens earned his 10th win and third shutout of the
playoffs. The Marlies 25-year-old goaltender improved on his already stellar
post-season stats. He entered the game with a 1.81 goals-against average and
.937 save percentage. “Stats are insignificant at this point,” Scrivens said.
“Im happy we won. Thats the biggest thing, especially with the line-up we had.
“From an outsiders point of view, maybe we were underdogs tonight, and maybe we
were, but weve got so much depth on this team and we have so much confidence in
this room.” That confidence in the team was echoed by Marlies head coach Dallas
Eakins after the game. “Thats the standard our players have set here over the
past couple of years,” he said. “They fully expect to win every single game.”
Philippe Dupuis, Nicolas Deschamps and Jerry DAmigo scored for Toronto. Yann
Danis made 10 saves on 12 shots in defeat. He was replaced by David LeNeveu to
start the third period. Despite being badly outplayed and outshot 13-5 in the
first period, it was the Marlies who opened up the scoring 13:42 into the game.
Danis kicked out a Deschamps slapshot and the rebound went straight to a
charging Dupuis, who pushed it past the Barons goalie for his fourth goal of the
post-season. “Im confident when were up by a goal, and Im confident when were
down by a goal The Barons looked to have tied the game 1:30 into the second
period, but the officials ruled that Ryan Keller directed the puck into the net
with his glove. The Marlies then took a 2-0 lead on a fluke goal at 12:24 of the
second when Deschamps banked a shot off Danis from behind the Barons net.
Toronto held back in the third period, getting just four shots on goal, but
Scrivens and the Marlies were able to hold off the Barons. “Its my job—thats
why I get paid,” Scrivens said. “Thats what I got to do. I take comfort in
knowing theyre going to score goals, so its a two-way street.” DAmigo clinched
the game, scoring an empty-netter with 1:38 left in the game. It was DAmigos
eighth goal of the playoffs, tying him with Matt Frattin and Norfolks Alexandre
Picard for tops in the playoffs. Game 5 goes Friday night at Ricoh Coliseum.
“Scrivy played a heck of a game,” Marlies defenceman Jake Gardiner said. “Hes
been great for us all playoffs…Hopefully he can do it again Friday.” Notes:
Colton Orr and Josh Engel were inserted into the line-up and formed the fourth
line with Jay Rosehill…Announced attendance was 6,238. ¡¡—and so are our
players,” Eakins said. “Weve been through a lot this year and weve just found a
way to win.” Wholesale Super Bowl Jerseys . Karlsson
