The early morning sun peaking over the Don Valley Parkway, the smell of fresh popcorn and the sound of seven thousand screaming school age children – nothing is more telling of 11am hockey than the way your senses tingle. Just a little different from every other game. You should try it out some time.

But since I have your ear, I’m just as well sharing six thoughts ahead of Wednesday’s game:

Yes there’s a pink elephant in the room, so we’re just as well ...

Yes, the Marlies play in Peoria.
Yes, I have six things to share with you ahead of the game.
Yes, one will involve a bus reference.

Why not get it out of the way early: since the captain took the cab ride to Air Canada Centre (extending his NHL stint by playing with the Leafs on Saturday night) he will not be joining the Marlies on their Sunday bus trip to Peoria
Toronto’s win over Milwaukee marked the seventh consecutive game in which the club has ...

Marlies are in Milwaukee, and I have six things for you to consider ahead of Saturday’s game:

All thought it was a two point night for Morgan Rielly in his pro debut Friday, but following the game officials removed the youngster’s assist on Spencer Abbott’s tally – I guess he’ll just have to settle for the third period tying goal
Korbinian Holzer collected an assist in his first game since returning to the Marlies, and newcomer Mike Komisarek finished the game with two shots and ...

Toronto - Nazem Kadri, Greg Scott, Ryan Hamilton

With the Royal road trip well under way, the Marlies turn to Texas to start stringing together some serious wins.

Houston’s first up. Perhaps it’s a good thing. Toronto was two for two against the Aeros last season. In fact, in their game this time last year Mark Owuya made his first AHL start. After allowing an early goal and perhaps shaking some of the nerves, the Marlies notched six straight tallies. Rookie Matt Frattin potted the overtime winner.

This time around, their meeting comes on a Thursday night with a 8pm ...

Toronto vs Abbotsford - Nazem Kadri

When I think of the Abbotsford Heat, do you want to know what I think of?

I recall three straight seasons the Marlies closed out against their west coast rival, two without a hope of the post-season.

I remember Greg Scott notching his his first career hat-trick in Abbotsford.

Above all, I am taken back to the very moment the Marlies new they were heading to the conference finals; having scored an overtime goal to take their fourth straight against the Heat. In a recent chat with Mike Zigomanis, the goal scorer, he ...

AHL Toronto vs Hamilton - Will Acton

For the third time in eight days the Toronto Marlies go toe to toe with Hamilton, instilling in the 40 on the ice and the countless watching that the AHL battle of Ontario is alive and well.

I feel like I should parade around the ring holding a sign with a giant ‘3’ painted in bold lettering. After all, the referee’s whistle to start the game is close enough to the ringing of the bell.

The Marlies make their second trip to Hamilton in this fledgling season, accounting for the only games ...
