The early morning sun peaking over the Don Valley Parkway, the smell of fresh popcorn and the sound of seven thousand screaming school age children – nothing is more telling of 11am hockey than the way your senses tingle. Just a little different from every other game. You should try it out some time.

But since I have your ear, I’m just as well sharing six thoughts ahead of Wednesday’s game:

Yes there’s a pink elephant in the room, so we’re just as well […]

Here are six things to keep in mind ahead of Saturday’s game against the Abbotsford Heat:

With 21 games left in the regular season the Toronto Marlies sit third in the conference, four points out of second and ten back of first
With a pair of assists on Wednesday, Mike Zigomanis hit the 400 point marker
Wednesday’s school-day win over Syracuse was the first time Drew MacIntyre has allowed more than two goals in his six starts with Toronto
The Heat have lost three straight and a […]

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 Grand Rapids - Keith Aucoin

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

When you look at the stats, things couldn’t be better for the Marlies. They have the league’s best record over the past 10, capturing 17 of a possible 20 points. Goal scoring has come with apparent ease, notching three or more in 10 of the last 11. Goaltender has secured four consecutive wins while Jussi Rynnas is yet to lose in regulation.

At the same time, the the bumps and bruises to the Toronto club seem to be […]

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 San Antonio - Spencer Abbot, Mike Kostka, Ryan Hamilton, Keith Aucoin

I usually have some sort of fancy opening relating hockey to life, or to the time of year, or perhaps just a few words attempting wit. Today all I’m going to open with is 7-2-1-0.

That is the Marlies record over the last ten games. At the moment it’s the second best in the league. By the end of the day, a win could bring the team the league’s best record over the past ten as well as the division’s top spot. Abbotsford, who presently hold the first place […]
