It is another two game week for the Marlies, so it leaves plenty of room for munching on the latest team news!

It could be a two milestone week for the Toronto Marlies Hockey Club. Brad Ross scored his 1st pro goal on Sunday, and it was timely vs. the Abbotsford Heat. Ross tipped in a point shot during the 3rd period that would tie the game at two goals apiece and produce a comeback for Toronto in the game. While the Calgary Flames affiliate spoiled the party, Ross still has ...

Toronto vs Wilkes-Barre/Scranton - Ben Scrivens & Mike Zigomanis

Saturday’s performance from Ben Scrivens was a stand-out one for the third-year pro.

I don’t want to pretend I’m a fancy shmancy hockey analyst – because when it comes to breaking down the forecheck or explaining the trap I’m all thumbs – but Scrivens’ poise, timing and sheer dominance looked to be the best he has put forward all season (not taking anything away from any other game – especially not his shutout).

Yet it seems the Urim and the Thummim did not fall in the Marlies favour (how’s that for a ...

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. Paul Ranger takes a leave from the game for almost three years, returns as part ...

In my five seasons covering the Marlies, I don’t think I have ever seen anything that came close to today’s game versus Hamilton.

And don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen some crazy things in my time.

There was the running over of James Reimer and subsequent four goal third period to lead the Marlies past the Senators in November 2009. I also remember a nutty third period against the Grand Rapids Griffins, one that saw more penalty minutes in the final ten minutes than some teams see in a month.

But ...

Toronto vs Abbotsford - Mike Zigomanis

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.

After a heartbreaking loss, however, I received one of the most reassuring tweets from @CVS521 :

I chuckled.

So back at it for the second against Abbotsford in as many ...
