DESSERT

Toronto’s 3-2 overtime win in-game 3 of the 1st round vs Rochester provided them with a sweep over the Americans in the first round, for the second straight post-season. Marlies forward Will Acton was the hero scoring¬† at the 5:14 mark of the 20 minute extra frame. When it was all said and done, Toronto had 14 skaters pick up at least a point in the opening ...

Here are six things to keep in mind ahead of today’s game:

The last two seasons have seen the Marlies meet the Amerks 23 times (20 ...

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!

Looking back on the year that ...

Playoffs or not (but let’s be honest, there will be playoffs), this marks the final three-in-three of the season. Thank goodness.

The Marlies are in Rochester for Friday’s game against the Americans, their last against both a divisional and conference opponent. Saturday and Sunday will be played at home to close out the season against cross-conference rival, St. John’s. Here are six things to chew on ahead of puck drop:

A win Friday will mean the Marlies clinch their second straight North Division title, ...

It’s time to play ketchup this time around at the Pre Game Meal….

DESSERT

Welcome aboard! The Toronto Marlies have lowered the ramp and a mass of talent has formed a crew of young guns trying to make their mark in the AHL. Following in the skate strides of Rielly, Sparks, Broll and Percy are other CHL grads Tyler Biggs (Oshawa-OHL) and Joshua Leivo (Sudbury/Kitchener-OHL) to go along with a captain last year in the NCAA – Andrew MacWilliam (North Dakota).

Tyler Biggs hit the OHL for the first time this season and ...

Do I spoil the surprise now, or do I wait to include it in one of my six points to think about? That is the question.

Oh what the heck. Why not?

The Toronto Marlies could clinch a playoff berth with a win against Abbotsford. Exciting, isn’t it? With only six games remaining in the regular season, the post-season seems to be within arms reach. The Heat however have the happy job of playing spoiler. Already eliminated from playoff contention, each win garnered by the ...
