Game Day Build-Up: Senators look to stop streaking Marlies

November 18, 2022

Nov.18/22 vs Toronto Marlies
NHL Affiliate: Toronto Maple Leafs

Presented by Carpenters Union Local 397

The Set-Up:

A third of the way into a 15-game stretch against North Division opponents, the Belleville Senators appear to be regaining their early-season form. And, after back-to-back shootout victories, including a wild 8-7 thriller over Cleveland at home on Wednesday, the Sens will have to remain sharp, as they welcome the rival Toronto Marlies to CAA Arena tonight. The division-leading Marlies are among the AHL’s winningest and highest-scoring teams so far this season and have earned points in eight straight games. They’re coming off a pair of trips to overtime themselves in Grand Rapids last weekend, when they lost 5-4 and won 3-2.

Previous History:

It’s only been about two weeks since the Sens and Marlies opened their season series, when Toronto picked up a 5-2 win. That loss dropped Belleville’s all-time record against Toronto to 28-23-2-2. The B-Sens all-time record at home against Toronto is 12-15-0-1.

Roster Notes:

There aren’t any anticipated roster changes for the Senators following Wednesday’s win over Cleveland. Coach Troy Mann will likely keep the line of Sens prospects Ridly Greig, Angus Crookshank, and Egor Sokolov together, after the trio has clicked for 12 points over the past three games. Defenceman Xavier Bernard will dress again, with Jacob Bernard-Docker and Jacob Larsson both called up to Ottawa. Kyle Betts  and Jared Lukosevicius will be the uninjured scratches for Belleville tonight.

Who to Watch:

Sens rookies Ridly Greig and Philippe Daoust are coming off strong performances against Cleveland this week. Greig had two goals and an assist, stretching his point streak to a season-long three games, while Daoust has points in four-of-six games he’s played this season, including a power play goal last game.

Former Peterborough Petes standout Semyon Der-Arguchintsev’s personal point streak has stretched as long as his team’s. He extended his eight-game run of points in Grand Rapids last weekend, with two goals and two assists over Toronto’s two-game set with the Griffins.
