The Toronto Marlies are the hottest team in Toronto. After defeating the Chicago Wolves 4-3 at Ricoh Coliseum on Wednesday night, the Marlies remain unbeaten in the 2014 Calder Cup Playoffs with a 6-0 record. With the win, Toronto took a 3-0 lead in the Western Conference Semifinal series.

After a back and fourth game, Jerry D'amigo scored 3:28 in to the first overtime to defeat the Wolves. D'amigo has points in each of the Marlies six games so far this postseason and leads the American Hockey League with 11 points (4G, 7A). Toronto's special teams were dominant once again, as Toronto went 1-2 on the power play and 2-3 on the penalty kill. The other goal scorers for the Marlies were Peter Holland, T.J. Brennan and Brandon Kozun.

The Marlies have two chances at home to close out the best-of-seven series. Game 4 goes Friday night at 7 p.m. If needed, game 5 is scheduled for Saturday night at 7 p.m. Tickets are still available for Game 4.
