Six things to think about ahead of Saturday’s game against Rochester:

Defenceman Kevin Marshall will wear #26 with the Marlies – he has practiced with the club following his trade earlier this week in exchange for Nicolas Deschamps
Marlies acquired Ryan Lasch in a trade that saw the Maple Leafs part ways with David Steckel, Lasch will wear #45
Joe Colborne has four points in the past five games
Ryan Hamilton is only five goals away from hitting the 30 goal plateau for the first time […]

Toronto vs Rochester - Will Acton

Here are six thoughts relating to tonight’s game:

Toronto has lost only one of six meetings against the Americans this season
Marlies are only one point out of first of the North division, which would vault them into third place in the conference
Ryan Hamilton leads the team with 21 goals and 34 points
Rochester has three players (Porter, Mancari, Brennan) with 35 or more points, two of which are over 40
The Americans have only a single win in their last five
Tune into all the action starting at 7pm on Rogers TV […]

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 […]
