TORONTO -- Toronto Marlies forward Jerry DAmigo is earning a reputation for being a big-game player. DAmigo, who entered Wednesdays Game 4 against the Chicago as the league-leader with nine points through five playoff games, scored in overtime as the Marlies edged the Wolves 4-3. "Hes always been the guy that wants to be in that situation positively or negatively he wants to be on the ice," said Toronto coach Steve Spott. "You can see tonight here again. Its a big game, its a critical moment and he rises to the occasion." DAmigo put home the rebound off a Trevor Smith point shot at 3:28 of the first over time for his fourth goal of the playoffs. Toronto now has a commanding 3-0 lead in its best-of-seven series with Chicago. "It was just kind of a mixup play and (Trevor Smith) got it back at the point, put it on net which I was happy and I was right there," said DAmigo, who also had an assist in the win. "I almost missed it there and I finally put it in." DAmigo is the franchise leader in playoff scoring with 13 goals and 20 assists in 32 games. When asked about is clutch playoff scoring he said simply: "The puck just happened to be on my stick at times you need it." The Marlies are a perfect 6-0 in the playoffs and have just one loss in 10 games dating back to the regular season. Toronto also improved to 5-4 all time in Calder Cup playoff overtime games. T.J. Brennan, Peter Holland, Brandon Kozun scored in regulation time for the Marlies, while Drew MacIntyre made 32 saves. MacIntyre, who has not lost a start in regulation since March 7, allowed three goals-against for the first time in these playoffs. "Hes the reason why were in the game, a lot of these games," said DAmigo. Hes the backbone of our team and a guy who is keeping us in it when were playing badly for him so he deserves a lot more credit than all of us in that room right now." Dmitrji Jaskin, Adam Cracknell and Tyler Shattock replied for the Wolves. Jake Allen, the reigning AHL goaltender of the year, made 26 saves in the loss. As a result of smoke in a nearby Federal Aviation Administration radar facility at Chicagos OHare International Airport on Tuesday, flights at both OHare and Midway were cancelled forcing the Wolves make alternate arrangements. Sixteen players along with the Chicago coaching staff made it to Toronto before midnight Tuesday with some players not arriving until 3 p.m. local time. Wednesday was by far the closest game to date in the series. After outscoring the Wolves 9-4 in the two games in Chicago, Game 3 was a back and forth affair between the two clubs. Brennan opened the scoring, on a power play, one-timing a Spencer Abbott feed glove-side past Allen for his third goal of the playoffs at 5:26 of the first. Jaskin tied it 1-1, on a power play, re-directing a Marc Cundari point shot for his fourth at 15:41. Just 50 seconds later, Holland restored Torontos lead, one-timing a Brennan pass from the side of the net past Allen for his fourth at 16:31. Cracknell tied it 2-2 with his third capitalizing off a Greg McKegg turnover and poking home the rebound off a Shane Harper shot at 18:28. However, just 11 seconds later, Kozun gave the Marlies a 3-2 lead putting a bouncing puck off of Allen from behind the goal line for his third of the playoffs. Toronto defenceman Andrew MacWilliam, who missed a month of the regular season with a concussion, left the game and did not return following a big hit on Cracknell behind the Toronto net early in the second period. MacWilliam was playing in just his fourth game since returning from the injury. Spott said MacWilliam suffered an upper body injury, but that it was unrelated to the concussion he suffered in the regular season. MacWilliam will be re-evaluated Thursday and could be an option Friday. Chicago controlled the play in the second period as they out-shot Toronto 14-5 and Shattock had the lone goal of the period batting a bouncing puck past a sprawling MacIntyre for his first of the playoffs at 11:34. "They came out hard and theyre not going to quit obviously," said DAmigo. "They were playing our end the whole second period basically and we had to change that up. "They had a tough travel day so we wanted to use our speed and use that to our advantage and I think we did that in the third." Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals is Friday night at Ricoh Coliseum. Notes: Maple Leafs great Wendel Clark was on hand to drop the puck in a ceremonial faceoff.

Saturdays tilt is the first of four scheduled meetings between the Red Wings and Leafs this season. The next encounter will be staged outdoors, as Detroit is set to host this years Winter Classic on Jan. 1 at Michigan Stadium. Before battling in front of 100,000 or so people, however, these two Original Six rivals will get together for tonights clash in Toronto, where the Red Wings have lost four straight games since last beating the Leafs on the road on Nov. 16, 2002. Toronto has taken four of five overall from the Red Wings, who are now playing in the same division as the Maple Leafs thanks to the onset of realignment. Detroit moved from the Western Conference to the East prior to this season and joined Toronto in the Atlantic Division. The Red Wings hope to stay on the right track tonight after halting a six-game losing streak in their last trip to the ice. Detroit stopped the 0-4-2 slide with Thursdays 3-2 overtime win over Calgary, as the Wings salvaged the final test of four-game homestand. Daniel Alfredsson scored his second goal of the game just 63 seconds into overtime to help the Red Wings defeat the Flames and record their first win since a road victory over New Jersey on Dec. 6. The Red Wings got a power play when Calgary defenseman TJ Brodie was whistled for hooking with 42 seconds left in regulation. On the ensuing power play, Pavel Datsyuk fed Alfredsson for a one-timer in the slot and the veteran buried a shot past Karri Ramo. "Were hanging in games and were playing some good hockey, and then all of a sudden, we have some lapses where we give the other team way too many chances," said Alfredsson. "We did that at times (tonight) too, but we grinded throughout the whole time, 60 minutes, and obviously Pavels play there at the end of regulation to draw the penalty turns out to be huge." Jonas Gustavsson made 20 saves for the Red Wings, who avoided their sixth consecutive loss on home ice.dddddddddddd. Detroit is playing three of its next four games on the road before hosting the Winter Classic and has a solid 10-3-3 away record this season. With regular No. 1 goaltender Jimmy Howard still out with a knee injury. Gustavsson expects to start tonight against his former team. It would mark the goaltenders first appearance against the Leafs since he joined Detroit as a free agent in the summer of 2012. In addition to Howard, forwards Henrik Zetterberg, Justin Abdelkader, Darren Helm and Johan Franzen will miss tonights game due to various injuries. However, Red Wings defenseman Danny DeKeyser is expected to return to the lineup Saturday after missing the last 15 games with a separated left shoulder. The Maple Leafs also will try for a second straight win on Saturday after halting a two-game slide of their own on Thursday. James Reimer will get the start in goal tonight. Toronto won for just the second time in six outings with a 2-1 shootout win against the visiting Phoenix Coyotes. James van Riemsdyk and Joffrey Lupul both scored in the shootout on Thursday to help the Maple Leafs pick up two points. Van Riemsdyk slipped the puck through Mike Smiths five-hole on the backhand. Smith flew back into the net and did not allow the referees to see where the puck went. After a review, the goal was deemed to be good. Mikkel Boedker then beat James Reimer on a backhand shot, but two Toronto shooters later, Lupul lit the lamp after faking the shot and wristing the puck over the shoulder of Smith. Troy Bodie netted Torontos lone goal in regulation. Cody Franson and Peter Holland picked up the assists on the score and Reimer turned aside 34 shots for the win. "Youre always looking for someone to step up for you. Obviously our goaltending has been strong for us. Tonight was another example of James Reimer stepping up. Were very fortunate to have him," said Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle. Toronto is capping a three-game homestand tonight and is 12-8-0 as the host this season. ' ' '
