There hasn’t been anything to say about the game two loss that hasn’t been said elsewhere. Â If you watched the game you saw the same thing as everyone else. The Marlies were the better team for most of the game. Â Rochester found a way to stay in the game like they have with just about all games all season but it wasn’t enough.
