Toronto vs Lake Erie - Nazem Kadri

The Toronto Marlies turn their attention Sunday to the Lake Erie Monsters, a team they have only met once so far this season.

Despite having won only two of their last eight, the Monsters aren’t a team the Marlies can afford to take lightly. The divisional foe handed the Toronto a 4-0 loss their first time in town, and rank third in the league with a 8-4-0 record while on the road. That record is much for the reason of the team’s sixth place standing in the Western Conference, […]

Oh these three-in-three weekends.

I don’t know how the players do it. But year after year they always manage. Far be it from me to be the guy complaining!

It’s game two of three straight for the Toronto team, who is coming off a victory in Rochester on Friday. Both the Americans and the Marlies travel to Toronto through the night in preparation for a Saturday night showdown at Ricoh Coliseum.

So far in their season long series the Marlies have collected a victory in both their home building and on […]

Toronto vs Rochester - Ben Scrivens

Friday will mark the latest battle in the Toronto and Rochester series. Heading into the game the two teams are tied with 19pts; the Americans have a slight advantage with a game in hand. Both vie for the eighth spot in the Western Conference.

In years past the end of November isn’t usually the time to start watching the standings – and trust me, I’m not trying to start anything here – but recently the league has shows a parody and competition level that calls to mind the NHL’s […]

Hershey Bears - Braden Holtby

After falling to both the Senators and the Penguins on the road, Dallas Eakins stated that he remains proud of how his team has played.

For many, the Marlies strongly outplayed their opponents in the first half of a four game road trip and have deserved a better result. The team’s ultimate leader and general, the bench boss now in his fourth season as head coach, said their fate was not due to a lack of effort, a needed change to their system or the search for a better […]

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends (and all my Canadian ones who feel like celebrating twice).

This evening I hope you enjoy plenty of turkey, a second helping of stuffing and a full serving of Marlies hockey as the team is in Binghamton, New York, to take on the Senators in the first of four matches against the Senators.

With only two home games in the calendar month – the lowest since returning to Toronto in 2005/06 – the Marlies are back on the road for the first of […]

The world of sports is an ocean full of great stories.

Matt Frattin goes down with an unfortunate injury the secure the advancement to the Calder Cup Finals for his team, doesn’t play again for nearly six months and then scores a pair of goals in his return. With all the focus once again turning on the offensive output of Nazem Kadri, the talented forward silences his critics with 10 points in four games. Paul Ranger takes a leave from the game for almost three years, returns as part […]
