It’s a seven game series and putting a team away for four games is no simple feat.

Those sentiments were shared by veteran defenceman Mike Komisarek following practice on Thursday, one day ahead of game four. Although he wasn’t part of the Marlies squad that fell in the finals last season, the blue liner knows the feeling all too well. As part of the 2003 Hamilton team, Komisarek advanced to the cup finals. The Bulldogs took the series the distance, but in the end they were shutout in game seven and watched […]

In the face of the Marlies largest ever goal deficit in a playoff loss, the words from their steadying coach was simply ‘live in it for a few minutes and let it go.’ The playoffs are all about one game at a time. One win. One loss.

A blowout victory won’t win a team a series any more than a big loss determines their fate. But rather how a team responds to the ups and downs of the post season, that is what’s […]

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 […]

Seventy-five down, one to go.

The Marlies are guaranteed the second spot in the West regardless of how this game ends. With no disrespect to past teams, the rosters of the past two playoff-bound Marlies squads have been arguably the best since the club left St. John’s. Fitting that they close out the season against the IceCaps.

Ahead of the final contest of the regular season, here are six things to thing about:

Seven games and counting. The end of the regular season is just weeks away. With a win in St. John’s on Friday night, the Marlies are poised for a decent end-of-season ranking – but they’re not out of the woods yet. Not a single Western Conference team has yet to clinch a playoff spot, Marlies included, so their focus is on another win Saturday against the IceCaps.
