TORONTO- It was a disappointing week of hockey for the Toronto Marlies as they dropped three road games in three days over the weekend, scoring just one goal in the process.

They were shutout 2-0 on Friday by the Milwaukee Admirals, and then again by the Peoria Rivermen on Saturday by the same score.

Sunday they were able to score their first goal in over 126 minutes, but they lost again 2-1 to the Chicago Wolves.

The Marlies will play one more road game before a short Christmas break and it will be Wednesday against the Rockford IceHogs.

Currently Toronto is 15-10-4 and sit atop the North Division standings, five points ahead of second place Rochester Americans.
