The last six periods have seen nine goals from the Toronto squad, the most yet over a two game span this season. On Saturday the Marlies will look to prove they can continue the upward swing and string together a third straight road victory.

The San Antonio Rampage – AHL affiliate to the Florida Panthers – will play host to the Toronto team on the ice surface inside AT&T Centre. Toronto was winless last season in the pair of games against the rampage, prolonging the struggles the Marlies have had against […]

It’s two wins in two nights for the Marlies as they continue through their second three-in-three of the season, Friday’s coming in a more decisive fashion than the first. But who’s keeping track?

Jussi Rynnas notched his second shutout in three games and Leo Komarov now has three goals in the first two games of the weekend.

And as the Marlies did everything they could on the ice to ensure success, I noticed a new trend develop amidst all of us back in Toronto rooting for the boys in blue. […]

After a big win in Houston yesterday, the Marlies look to do it all over again as they hit up Austin tonight.

Well maybe not exactly like yesterday. You see, the Marlies ended up scoring four third period goals in the come-from-behind win, as they started the frame down 4-2.

In their middle game of the team’s second three-in-three of the season, the Marlies look to improve on last season’s pair of losses against the Texas Stars. The 8:30 puck drop will mark this rendition of the team’s annual trip […]

Alright, that was one heck of a third period. I liked it so much so that I thought I may just put out a little something special.

Down 4-2 entering the final frame, giving up was the last thing on the Marlies mind. After a road trip that has been a bit bumpy at times, this period of excellence couldn’t have come at a better time; likely for both us and the team. It helped me remember just how much talent is contained on this roster.

Toronto - Nazem Kadri, Greg Scott, Ryan Hamilton

With the Royal road trip well under way, the Marlies turn to Texas to start stringing together some serious wins.

Houston’s first up. Perhaps it’s a good thing. Toronto was two for two against the Aeros last season. In fact, in their game this time last year Mark Owuya made his first AHL start. After allowing an early goal and perhaps shaking some of the nerves, the Marlies notched six straight tallies. Rookie Matt Frattin potted the overtime winner.

This time around, their meeting comes on a Thursday night with a 8pm […]

Been working on yet another new project.

Rivals: Marlies/Bulldogs looks at one of the best AHL battles rooted deep in the NHL’s history.
