Toronto vs Wilkes-Barre/Scranton - Mike Zigomanis

Just days after the previous game day blog discussing Marlies on the move up to the NHL and how quickly things can change, the roster has yet again been shaken up.

Although the circumstances are all completely unrelated, it almost seems like the Marlies cashed in on a two-for-one deal. Matt Frattin was recalled by the NHL Maple Leafs to replace the injured Joffrey Lupul, while Toronto’s AHL blue line has been bolstered with the returning of both Korbinian Holzer and Jake Gardiner. Frattin made haste with impression making […]

The final two games of the month of January also represent the remaining pair before the AHL All-Star break. It also means this is the final Pre Game Meal before February, so please enjoy!

Toronto vs Wilkes-Barre/Scranton - Ben Scrivens & Mike Zigomanis

Saturday’s performance from Ben Scrivens was a stand-out one for the third-year pro.

I don’t want to pretend I’m a fancy shmancy hockey analyst – because when it comes to breaking down the forecheck or explaining the trap I’m all thumbs – but Scrivens’ poise, timing and sheer dominance looked to be the best he has put forward all season (not taking anything away from any other game – especially not his shutout).

Yet it seems the Urim and the Thummim did not fall in the Marlies favour (how’s that for a […]

WBS Penguins - Phil Dupuis

As the Marlies continue their tour of the Eastern Conference, their next stop is the home of the Penguins.

Now, before everyone gets tongue-tied, I’ll help you out with the town name. The Penguins reside almost right in between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia; spelled Wilkes-Barre you’ll want to pronounce it WILLKS-BAR. The Scranton on the end honours the town 30 minutes away (made popular over recent times by The Office).

Now enough with the geography lesson, let’s switch to math.

Having lost their past two on the road, the Marlies visit Wilkes-Barre […]
