It is an all Canadian week in the AHL for the Marlies, so break out your maple syrup and enjoy the latest edition of the Pre Game Meal!

It is always more fun to look at events in life in a positive manner and so, I choose to do so with the Marlies entering play in St. John’s off a loss to Hamilton. Toronto had played 10 games without a regulation loss prior to Tuesday night and in those 10 games, collected 8 wins and 18 of a possible 20 points. ...

Toronto vs Hamilton - Ryan Hamilton

Is it just me, or did these next few games get a whole lot more important?

The Marlies have been on a monumental run, the club has collected at least a point in ten straight games and a win in eight of those. With the Toronto club on the heels of three straight sellout crowds, they now head to the road for a half dozen contests as the Ricoh ice surface becomes submerged and the boat show floats in. With eyes on so many of the talents that comprise ...

Toronto vs Rockford - Ben Scrivens, Greg McKegg, Korbinian Holzer

What came first, the chicken or the egg?

I’ve rolled this around time and time again. Not because I have any specific affinity for the fowl, but rather because like any other formula it can be applied over and over to like situations. What drives a player out of a slump, a timely goal which changes his mindset; or a change in mindset leading to a timely goal?

We all have new year’s resolutions, right?

Even if we don’t write them down or announce them in front of a group, I’m sure we all make them. Perhaps it’s buying a house, getting a promotion, hitting the gym or something as simple as trying one thing new. I think we all make them.

If I were to draw up the Marlies resolution for the new year it would look something like this:

Don’t Change a Thing!

The Toronto club sits atop of the Western Conference, tied with Charlotte but holding three ...

It is a short week in terms of play for Toronto with only 2 games on the docket, but the club have been filling their time with hard working practices and I’m here to bring you up to speed on some Marlies munchies heading into the weekend play.

With a goal and an assist in Toronto’s 6-0 win over the Bulldogs on Tuesday, Ryan Hamilton moved to 15 goals on the season. That mark is above any other teammate at the time of this posting and is good enough to crack ...

Toronto vs Hamilton - Joe Colborne, Matt Frattin, Paul Ranger

I picture a director with his black and white striped clapper in hand. Written on it are the words ‘Toronto vs Hamilton’ and the man in charge yells “take seven” before bringing forth a sound from the instrument worthy of its name.

It is one week to the day since these two clubs last met, a game far more one-sided than the 3-2 score let on. Toronto scored three consecutive goals before allowing one against. A fluke shot with a second left then banked in past Scrivens ...
