    ROSEMONT, Ill. Air Max Elite Sale . -- Even as two early power-play goals helped establish a 3-0 lead Toronto Marlies coach Steve Spott said he still felt uneasy Friday. He didnt need to worry. The Marlies never trailed on the way to a 5-2 American Hockey League playoff victory over the Chicago Wolves in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinal. "Its a little bit scary. Youre up 3-0 and two of those goals came pretty early," Spott said. "It definitely didnt feel like a 3-0 game. We knew they were going to come at us, they did." The Marlies used two power-play goals to grab an the early advantage while goaltender Drew MacIntyre turned back 37 shots. "It was a 60-minute effort," Spott said. "All four lines played very hard tonight." Centre Trevor Smith opened the scoring with his first goal of the post-season, a power-play goal on a short backhand at 10:54 of the first period. Toronto converted another power-play chance at 14:55 as centre Peter Holland slipped a backhand over the glove of Wolves goaltender Jake Allen. The teams were at even strength in the second when Greg McKegg scored his second goal of the playoffs at 5:02 with a slapshot for a 3-0 lead. "Once they got up a couple of goals they (played) a little freer, they felt good about themselves and it took us a while to get back on track," said Chicago coach John Anderson. The Wolves got on the board five minutes later as Christian Hanson dumped a short rebound shot past MacIntyre. Chicago winger Michael Davies cut the deficit to 3-2 at 17:26, beating MacIntyre on a one-on-one. Toronto restored a two-goal lead at 3:53 of the third period. Winger Carter Ashton slipped while shooting but his wide, wobbly shot was deflected off Allens stick into the net. The Marlies closed out the Wolves on Sam Carricks fourth post-season goal at 17:19. "There were a couple of mistakes that cost us goals," Spott said. "We didnt get in the shot lane when we should have and had a bad line change in the second period. But beyond those two mistakes I thought we played a pretty thorough road game." Allen finished with 30 saves for Chicago. In two regular season meetings this season, seven-of-eight combined goals by the Wolves and Marlies came on power plays. The Marlies claimed a 3-2 overtime win at Chicago on Jan. 17 while the Wolves had a 2-1 triumph eight days later in Toronto. The series resumes Saturday in suburban Chicago then shifts to Torontos Ricoh Coliseum next Wednesday for at least two games, and three if necessary. The post-season series is the first between the teams since 2008. The Wolves went 4-1 on the way to their most recent Calder Cup. Air Max 2017 Sale . Helwani said that Weidman has been dealing with recurring swelling and pain in his knees related to torn meniscus he suffered as a teenager and the problems came to a head last week when he suffered prolonged swelling and pain in his left knee, resulting in the decision to undergo an arthroscopic scope procedure to clean up the tear in both knees. Nike Flyknit Sale .C. -- Kevin Harvick won his first career pole at Darlington Raceway on Friday as he looks to chase his first Southern 500.The Calgary Flames try to extend the momentum created by a successful road trip into Tuesday nights home meeting with the banged-up Tampa Bay Lightning. The Flames began the season with a loss to the visiting Vancouver Canucks before posting a 4-2 record on a six-game road trip. They capped the swing with Sundays 4-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets and will play their next five at home. Dennis Wideman, Johnny Gaudreau and Mason Raymond all potted second-period goals in the victory over the Jets. Defenseman T.J. Brodie added a goal in the third frame and Jonas Hiller made 34 saves. Raymonds goal was his fifth of the season. Great second period. We came out strong, we came out with a great forecheck. We got a big power-play goal, Calgary head coach Bob Hartley said. Brodie has three goals and seven points through Calgarys first seven games and on Monday signed a five-year contract extension. It seemed like a good deal, Brodie said on Calgarys website. The longer you wait there is always risks, too. Whether its injuries or having a cold slump or something like that. To get it out of the way now, it gives me a chance to relax and not have to think about it. The Lightning dont want to think too much about last nights 3-2 loss in Edmonton, the Oilers first win of the season. Brian Boyle and Brett Connolly scored for the Lightning, who have split the first two of their five-game road trip. Ben Bishop allowed three goals on 23 shots in the loss. We just werent making any plays, Bishop said. Every time we got the puck we just flicked it and turned it over and they took it back to us. The highlight of the game was the NHHL debut of Tampa Bay forward Jonathan Drouin, the third overall pick of the 2013 draft. Air Max Sale. Drouin was recalled from the American Hockey League on Sunday after completing a rehab assignment for a thumb injury and was not expected to play, but was put into the lineup after Alex Killorn sustained an upper-body injury during morning skate. The 19-year-old Drouin had one shot on goal in just over 16 minutes of ice time, posting a minus-1 rating. After losing Killorn earlier in the day, forward Ryan Callahan suffered a lower-body injury versus the Oilers and is not expected to play tonight. Tampa Bay is already without defenseman Victor Hedman for the next 4-to-6 weeks because of a hand injury. Hedman had posted three goals and seven points over the first five games, while Callahan has three goals and five points in six games. The Lightning have won four of their past six versus the Flames as well as five of its last seven trips to Calgary.
