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?

What has created the Marlies movement in Toronto? Has increased attendance lead to improved ...

Toronto vs Hamilton

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.

DESSERT

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 ...

Toronto vs Hamilton - Dallas Eakins

The AHL announced officially on Sunday that Marlies head coach Dallas Eakins will represent the team as head coach of Team West at the upcoming All-Star Game in Providence, Rhode Island.

It’s been quite the year for the Marlies bench boss who lead his team to a division championship, was the first Maple Leafs affiliate coach to bring the team to an appearance in the finals in 20 years, and became both the Marlies all-time leader in wins as a coach as well as securing the title among all ...

Toronto vs Grand Rapids - Will Acton

I never really liked road games.

I understand they’re necessary but there’s nothing that can compare to rolling into a familiar rink, getting some fresh popcorn and taking in some afternoon puck. However, if you were to look outside my window right now you would get why I’m thankful the Marlies are closing out 2012 in Grand Rapids.

Yepp, I said it. Closing out 2012. It’s the last game for the Marlies in the calendar year.

I’m almost sad to see it go. Think of all the incredible things that 2012 ...
