The world of sports is an ocean full of great stories.

Matt Frattin goes down with an unfortunate injury the secure the advancement to the Calder Cup Finals for his team, doesn’t play again for nearly six months and then scores a pair of goals in his return. With all the focus once again turning on the offensive output of Nazem Kadri, the talented forward silences his critics with 10 points in four games.

It would be the greatest understatement of the season thus far if I simply said last night didn’t end the way the Marlies had hoped.

After a pair of outstanding saves from Ben Scrivens and a goal by Leo Komarov that was waived off, the Marlies must have still felt momentum heading into the third. Unfortunately two goals in three seconds dictated a different outcome.

As we head into the Marlies opening game of the second round of Calder Cup playoff action against the Abbotsford Heat, I thought it was a good time to play a little game called ‘When’s the Last Time.’

It’s pretty simple, actually. I will rhetorically ask a question starting with ‘when’s the last time…’ and then post the answer. There’s really nothing to it. And since – much like a grade 11 math textbook – the answer is provided for your reading pleasure, it means all of […]
