The SiriusXM Hockeytown Winter Festival has come and gone and it was an event to remember. Not only did the Marlies defeat the Grand Rapids Griffins in an exciting 4-3 shootout win (you can read the recap and watch the highlights here), but the #SEAofBLUE and Marlies fans were out in full force representing Toronto loud and proud as evidenced by the persistent “Go Leafs Go!” and “Let’s Go Marlies” chants throughout Comerica Park during the game.
The blue and white contingent could be found on the streets of Detroit, at the Fan Fest right outside of Comerica Park and throughout the stands at Comerica Park.
Thank you to Detroit for hosting us and for a very memorable few days. And most of all, thank you to all of our fans who braved the cold with us and helped cheer the Marlies on to a 4-3 shootout victory over the Griffins, making the Marlies a perfect 2-0 in outdoor games so far in the franchise’s history.
