I’m a huge YouTube nerd. Trust me, sometimes I think my family’s planning an intervention. It’s because of this mild obsession with the online video source (one that I’ve patched right through to my television on numerous occasions) that I get a little giddy over the fact that the Marlies YouTube channel finally has a video that struck the one million mark.

Drew MacIntyre’s spectacular behind-the-back glove save is simply one of the greatest things I’ve ever seen. It’d be near impossible to track ...

Well Saturday was quite the event, now wasn’t it? The Toronto Marlies took a 1-0 lead over the Rochester Americans with a 6-3 win in a game that was tied 3-3 after the second period. As the Marlies look to do it all again and hopefully take a stranglehold of the first round series, here are six things for you to roll around in your noggin ahead of game two:

I feel like a modern day Paul Revere clad in a blue and white jersey running around the city proclaiming “the Playoffs are coming!”

Alas, it’s true. The 2013 Calder Cup Playoffs have finally arrived and the Toronto Marlies are set to kick them off the exact same way they did last year – a first round meeting with Rochester.

Toronto vs Rockford - Ben Scrivens, Greg McKegg, Korbinian Holzer

What came first, the chicken or the egg?

I’ve rolled this around time and time again. Not because I have any specific affinity for the fowl, but rather because like any other formula it can be applied over and over to like situations.

You remember that amusing hide-and-go-seek book that our parents bought us for long car rides to keep us quiet? You know, the one with the tall skinny man with glasses and the striped hat. Yeah, well we’re creating our own version of it.

We’ve been having so much fun at the rink through the playoffs, we thought we’d bring it outdoors. And so, with that grand notion cooked up in the digital offices at Leafs TV, we bring you “Where’s ...

As we head into the Marlies opening game of the second round of Calder Cup playoff action against the Abbotsford Heat, I thought it was a good time to play a little game called ‘When’s the Last Time.’

It’s pretty simple, actually. I will rhetorically ask a question starting with ‘when’s the last time…’ and then post the answer. There’s really nothing to it. And since – much like a grade 11 math textbook – the answer is provided for your reading pleasure, it means all of ...
