Toronto vs Hamilton - Joe Colborne, Matt Frattin, Paul Ranger

I picture a director with his black and white striped clapper in hand. Written on it are the words ‘Toronto vs Hamilton’ and the man in charge yells “take seven” before bringing forth a sound from the instrument worthy of its name.

It is one week to the day since these two clubs last met, a game far more one-sided than the 3-2 score let on. Toronto scored three consecutive goals before allowing one against. A fluke shot with a second left then banked in past Scrivens […]

Toronto vs Hamilton - Jake Gardiner and Leo Komarov

If you’re anything like me, you adore tradition.

It’s what huddles us all together during the holiday time even if it means sleeping in a bed at your parents place you outgrew years ago or eating that fruit cake that you don’t really like. It’s watching the first game of the World Junior Championship on Boxing Day, even if it means waking up at 4am.

December 26th brings another hockey spectacle. Since 2007 the Marlies have met a divisional foe in what I like to call (well.. what I stole from former […]

Toronto vs Hamilton - Nazem Kadri and Keith Aucoin

The latest in the rivalry series has dropped.

Centring around the premise that a singular team’s success fuels rivalry, this edition of Rivalry: Marlies/Bulldogs¬†walks through the post-season success that both the Toronto and Hamilton teams have found in recent years. It’s nutty when you think of it. The Bulldogs won the Calder Cup in ’07. The Marlies storm back and go on a run to the conference finals in ’08 taking the first two series in seven games. Both teams make the playoffs in 2009. Hamilton goes […]

Toronto vs Hamilton - EA Sports

This has got to be one of the funniest things I have ever seen. And most brilliant.

EA Sports has decided to do a weekly AHL Sim of the Week, the most recent was everyone’s favourite AHL rivalry; Hamilton vs Toronto. And I’d like to start out by saying this that even the computers know that Toronto would beat their provincial adversary.

The game took place at Copps Coliseum in front of what appears to be a sellout crowd (not too different than the Bulldog’s impressive attendance numbers this season). Opening the […]

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 v Hamilton - Scott

The boys are back in town.

The Marlies return home Saturday to face the Hamilton Bulldogs in what has begun to feel like a weekly affair. It’s the fifth game between the two rivals of the fledgling regular season, with two more tacked on in preseason.

After battling hard to tie it on Friday, two goals in 34 seconds sealed the fate of the Marlies in the third period, giving the Bulldogs their first win in four games and handing Toronto their first loss in five. After having traveled to six different […]
