It’s Saturday afternoon and we’re inside ten games left in the AHL regular season. The Marlies are finally finished that last big road trip, and they return home to a familiar crowd. Abbotsford is in town, a divisional rival that has a long history of hard fought games against the Marlies. Here are six things to keep in mind ahead of the game.

Alright, this is where the real fun begins. Eleven games and counting left in the 2012/13 season. Marlies are in Rochester in their final game of their seven game road trip and – like all of us – want to return home on a winning note. There are six things I have strung together to keep in mind ahead of the game, and if you’ve gone this far you’re just as well continuing on. Right?

As the Marlies prepare for Wednesday’s game, you can prep yourself with six points to keep in mind:

Marlies streak of points in five consecutive road games is the team’s longest since November 3 – 16, 2011, where the team picked up at least a point in nine road games
Toronto presently sits second place in the Western Conference, tied in both points and games plays with third place Grand Rapids
Jerry D’Amigo has four goals and five points over the past five games

Yes, the Marlies play in Peoria.
Yes, I have six things to share with you ahead of the game.
Yes, one will involve a bus reference.

Why not get it out of the way early: since the captain took the cab ride to Air Canada Centre (extending his NHL stint by playing with the Leafs on Saturday night) he will not be joining the Marlies on their Sunday bus trip to Peoria
Toronto’s win over Milwaukee marked the seventh consecutive game in which the club has ...

Marlies are in Milwaukee, and I have six things for you to consider ahead of Saturday’s game:

All thought it was a two point night for Morgan Rielly in his pro debut Friday, but following the game officials removed the youngster’s assist on Spencer Abbott’s tally – I guess he’ll just have to settle for the third period tying goal
Korbinian Holzer collected an assist in his first game since returning to the Marlies, and newcomer Mike Komisarek finished the game with two shots and ...

Tonight’s game is big for a lot of reasons, so hear are six points to keep in mind:

With a victory, the Marlies win streak could be extended to six – a feat that has not been accomplished since March 30 – April 8 last season
A Toronto win and a Grand Rapids loss would move the Marlies into the conference’s second spot
Marlies are without smooth skating defenceman Jake Gardiner and captain Ryan Hamilton, as both have been recalled to the Maple Leafs
