DESSERT

Even in the last game of the regular season, the Marlies had a 1st to celebrate. Tyler Biggs recorded his 1st AHL/Pro goal with the 1st tally of the game vs St. John’s. Biggs collected 26 this past season with the Generals in the OHL and had 9 with Miami of Ohio one year before in the NCAA. The former Maple Leaf’s 1st round pick became the 9th Marlie player this season to record his 1st AHL goal in the 2012-2013 campaign. Congrats, Tyler!

APPETIZER

Looking back on the year that ...

Toronto vs Texas - Ryan Hamilton

Marlies close out their home stand on Sunday.

Well… sort of.

As of Sunday, Toronto will play their fourth consecutive game at Ricoh Coliseum as they host the Texas Stars. And although their next game is away from home, you can’t exactly say they ‘hit the road.’ After four straight at home, the Marlies head to Hamilton for a game on the 12th, followed by two more at home. The Toronto club will then venture to Syracuse only to return to Ricoh for 10 straight. In total, that’s 16 of ...

Toronto vs Hamilton - Jake Gardiner and Leo Komarov

At what point of the season does it become acceptable to start scoreboard watching? Is there an actual threshold we cross in which it’s alright to start calculating the number of games left and minimal amount of wins needed to make it into the post season?

The Marlies, who lead the Western Conference on New Year’s Eve, now find themselves ten points back of first and relegated to sixth in the West and on the unfavourable end of a three game losing streak. If the season ended today, Toronto ...

Toronto vs San Antonio - Ryan Hamilton

It’s been quite the week for Ricoh regulars and Marlies faithful alike.

I’ll delve into the individual accomplishments in a minute, but first I think it’s appropriate to just appreciate the past ten games for the Marlies. Despite key injuries, the club has put up a 7-2-1-0 record. Without a team effort, individual success is quite tough – and generally appreciated somewhat less.

Following a rough start after a shortened offseason, the club broke out the steam roller and is tackling every obstacle thrown its way. The Marlies now sit ...

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 ...
