––Murph with the Marlies Update.
Game 4 is tonight in Texas, where the Marlies will no doubt be in for another close game. If you haven’t been keeping up with the games, the Marlies are currently up 2-1 in the series. But even though they are up in the series the games have been close as well.
Tonight the Marlies could have a few lineup changes, Freddy the goat was injured last game and according to @HennyTweets he will be a game time decision
Gauthier will be a game time decision in Texas tonight, if not able to go Rich Clune would be a probable candidate to replace him . #Marlies

So we could see Cluner gooning it up against Texas tonight, which in my opinion wouldn’t necessarily be bad. The Marlies have tons of skill to use against Texas but it would be nice to see a bit of grit put into the lineup. (something I’d also like to see in the Leafs lineup next season).
Looking for a big game from our top prospects that I suspect to see next year with the big club. Johnsson will be a big factor tonight as he has been all playoffs, from what I have watched in the previous games he has had some chances but has only had 1 assist (1 point) in the last 3 games.
I will assume that Sparks will be in-between the pipes again tonight, he has been a mainstay in the Marlies net this playoffs (and regular season).
If the Marlies win tonight it will be in Texas AGAIN (2-3-2 series sucks) on Saturday for game 5 and a potential series ender.
Hoping for a good night of hockey since there is no other good hockey on now.
