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 […]

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

When you look at the stats, things couldn’t be better for the Marlies. They have the league’s best record over the past 10, capturing 17 of a possible 20 points. Goal scoring has come with apparent ease, notching three or more in 10 of the last 11. Goaltender has secured four consecutive wins while Jussi Rynnas is yet to lose in regulation.

At the same time, the the bumps and bruises to the Toronto club seem to be […]

Toronto vs Hamilton - Jake Gardiner and Leo Komarov

If you’re anything like me, you adore tradition.

It’s what huddles us all together during the holiday time even if it means sleeping in a bed at your parents place you outgrew years ago or eating that fruit cake that you don’t really like. It’s watching the first game of the World Junior Championship on Boxing Day, even if it means waking up at 4am.

December 26th brings another hockey spectacle. Since 2007 the Marlies have met a divisional foe in what I like to call (well.. what I stole from former […]
