DESSERT

Games at hand. The amount of games a team has played can help determine where they end up in the standings. It played in Toronto’s favour, following a win on Sunday, as the Marlies jumped from 8th to 3rd in the Western Conference. This is why the point continues to be made – the stretch of 10 straight home games (now 8) carries a lot of weight for the Marlies because of how they are positioned in the standings. At 51 games played heading into this week, Toronto has 27 ...

Toronto vs Rochester - Will Acton

Haven’t had enough of the Americans yet? Well then, you’ve come to the right place.

For the fourth time in two weeks the Marlies will take on divisional foe Rochester. The good news? the previous three have resulted in wins. In fact, including the first round playoff series between the two clubs, Toronto has defeated their Rochester rival in nine straight games. How’s that for a streak?

But unlike the meetings of late, Rochester heads into Saturday’s contest with the confidence of two straight victories behind them. One being to ...

Toronto vs Rochester - Nicolas Deschamps, Mike Zigomanis

I have always found interest in the ebbs and flows of a season. The way the same group of 20 men can climb to such highs and no sooner be forced to face what at times seems to be a complete turn of luck.

Even more intriguing than the ritualistic ups and downs are the nuances of the game completely out of the control of those who make up the team.

Miles traveled, back heavy schedules, hyperactive three-in-three weekends and long rest periods all add to the drama of a ...

Toronto vs Rochester - Nazem Kadri

It has been said by management and coach alike from just about any team you wish to choose, they always look for their key prospects to dominate at the AHL level.

Nazem Kadri has 17 points in 19 games for the Marlies.

Of those 17, 13 came in an effort to set up his teammates for the tally. But from the looks of his two goals Saturday, Kadri is quite comfortable putting them in the net himself.

Part of me wants to write more, but I realize that all ...

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 ...
