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.

That’s right, it’s a home and home; AHL rivalry style.

Including the two preseason meetings (which Toronto won both) the Marlies and Bulldogs will square off 14 times this season, including a pair of home & home contests.
