Amerks host Marlies on NHL Network tonight

nhlnetwork_200.jpgThe Rochester Americans host the Toronto Marlies tonight in a battle of North Division rivals, and the game will air live across Canada and the United States on NHL Network.

The Marlies, with high-flying forward Jiri Tlusty, enter the game in fourth place in the North, just three points ahead of both Syracuse and Peoria in the race for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Amerks, led by 2009 AHL All-Star goaltender Mike Brodeur, will be looking to snap a three-game losing streak as the teams meet in the third of six AHL games scheduled to be carried live by NHL Network this regular season.
