It was no ordinary trip through the Midwest division for the Toronto Marlies this past weekend. The group of games through Chicago, Milwaukee and Peoria represented numbers 3,4 and 5 of 7 straight away from Ricoh Coliseum and also brought the total number of states visited to 4 during the stretch of travel/games. However, those are not even the cool stats! The game against the Wolves, followed up by the game vs the Admirals represented to milestone moments for a pair of young Marlies.

Morgan Rielly scored his 1st AHL/Pro goal ...

Yes, the Marlies play in Peoria.
Yes, I have six things to share with you ahead of the game.

Toronto’s win over Milwaukee marked the seventh consecutive game in which the club has ...

Marlies are in Milwaukee, and I have six things for you to consider ahead of Saturday’s game:

All thought it was a two point night for Morgan Rielly in his pro debut Friday, but following the game officials removed the youngster’s assist on Spencer Abbott’s tally – I guess he’ll just have to settle for the third period tying goal
Korbinian Holzer collected an assist in his first game since returning to the Marlies, and newcomer Mike Komisarek finished the game with two shots and ...

Tonight’s game is big for a lot of reasons, so hear are six points to keep in mind:

With a victory, the Marlies win streak could be extended to six – a feat that has not been accomplished since March 30 – April 8 last season
A Toronto win and a Grand Rapids loss would move the Marlies into the conference’s second spot
Marlies are without smooth skating defenceman Jake Gardiner and captain Ryan Hamilton, as both have been recalled to the Maple Leafs
