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 […]

Toronto v Florida - Matt Frattin

Matt Frattin was absolutely stunning in his return.

Kudos to the sharp-shooting forward who returned to the lineup Friday night ready to play. Apparently the news if Frattin’s eligibility came so close to game time that the bus had to hold back a few extra minutes for him to arrive. And judging by the result, there was no better way to spend that extra time.

Frattin came out roaring with the game’s opening goal, and then a second later on to draw the Marlies to within one of the Bulldogs.

If […]

Toronto - Keith Aucoin

***

UPDATE: Matt Frattin to dress for the Toronto Marlies tonight. In his 13 playoff games prior to injury Frattin scored 10 goals, 13 points. Certainly a welcomed return to the Toronto lineup.

As it marked the beginning of the Marlies extended time away from Ricoh, so too does it indicate the end.

The Toronto Marlies return to Copps Coliseum to meet the Bulldogs after stringing together four wins and suffering only two losses since they last squared off in a game that was ultimately decided by Simon Gysbers’ overtime goal. Those four […]

TORivals - Hamilton

 

Been working on yet another new project.

Rivals: Marlies/Bulldogs¬†looks at one of the best AHL battles rooted deep in the NHL’s history. Reflecting on decades of Leafs & Habs feuds, leading up through the success of their affiliates while in Toronto and Hamilton, all culminating in this season’s Boxing Day Classic taking place between the Marlies and Bulldogs at ACC on December 26th.

Walking us through this rivalry is Ryan Hamilton, Mike Zigomanis, Nazem Kadri, Sylvain Lefebvre, Zack Stortini and of course this guy….

One of the neatest things I discovered […]
