After a first round sweep of the Western Conference Quarter Finals, here is a little Marlies info to wet your whistle before round 2.

DESSERT

Toronto’s 3-2 overtime win in-game 3 of the 1st round vs Rochester provided them with a sweep over the Americans in the first round, for the second straight post-season. Marlies forward Will Acton was the hero scoring¬† at the 5:14 mark of the 20 minute extra frame. When it was all said and done, Toronto had 14 skaters pick up at least a point in the opening […]

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 […]

Toronto vs Grand Rapids - Jussi Rynnas

Usually I’m game for coincidental stats. But this time I’m not too hot on it.

The Marlies are coming off a 4-3 shootout win. It’s only the second time they have seen the shootout this season. The first time was a Sunday home game against Grand Rapids. A contest the Griffins won 4-3.

Do you see what I’m talking about? A little close for comfort.

That said, I’m all about turning a new leaf; putting past demons behind me; and improving on lessons learned. I don’t expect the Marlies to take […]

So here we go, one more game and we will have all made it through our first three-in-three of the season. The more of these I experience, the more respect I gain for the players.

Thankfully for us all, this is one of only five this season. So we’re 20% of the way through.

Sunday brings with it a game against the Grand Rapids Griffins – AHL affiliate to the Detroit Red Wings. This is one of four meetings between the two clubs, half as many as last season as the Griffins […]

Steeltown Showdown

A line of 175 people draws attention in even the most usual places on the most usual of days.

Now dress them in maroon and white jerseys in midday heat reaching well into the seventies. At this point both my empathy and intrigue go through the roof.

I’ll lay this out at the beginning; no, there was not an ice-cream truck fronting the group.

Hockey tickets went on sale Monday in Hershey, PA, for an event which is designed to take place in far cooler outdoor temperatures. The fourth year of the AHL’s […]
