The Maple Leafs home opener is always¬† a game that holds a few more special moments than most of the rest to follow over the course of the NHL season in Toronto. For the Marlies organization, it was extra special. 11 of the 20 players that made up the Maple Leafs home opening roster had spent playing […]

Want to know the best part of the Marlies game being snowed out on Friday forcing the team to stay an extra day and play a rescheduled Sunday game? There’s not much to change for the Saturday preview.

Catch the preview originally intended for Friday, but equally applicable for Saturday.

We’ve all wondered the same thing and, without request nor anticipation, it seems January (11th) 12th is the day to answer. With the imminent return of the NHL, how will the Toronto Marlies fare?

Toronto vs Rochester - Nicolas Deschamps, Mike Zigomanis

I have always found interest in the ebbs and flows of a season. The way the same group of 20 men can climb to such highs and no sooner be forced to face what at times seems to be a complete turn of luck.

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.

Like you, I’ve spent a good number of hours pouring over statistics.

I’m talking every digit you could imagine.

From rookie season goal totals to penalty minutes in major junior. I’ve allowed my eyes to peruse plus/minus ratings in the playoffs and average ice time during NHL stints. I’ve compared face-off stats, penalty kill rates and goals scored while four-on-four.

One digit I cannot find ranked in a column, however, is that of chemistry. It’s an unquantifiable bond that propels lines to heights greater than […]
