Been working on yet another new project.
Rivals: Marlies/Bulldogs looks at one of the best AHL battles rooted deep in the NHL’s history. Reflecting on decades of Leafs & Habs feuds, leading up through the success of their affiliates while in Toronto and Hamilton, all culminating in this season’s Boxing Day Classic taking place between the Marlies and Bulldogs at ACC on December 26th.
Walking us through this rivalry is Ryan Hamilton, Mike Zigomanis, Nazem Kadri, Sylvain Lefebvre, Zack Stortini and of course this guy….
One of the neatest things I discovered while prepping:
- 2007 – Bulldogs win Calder Cup
- 2008 – Marlies advance to Conference Finals
- 2010 – Bulldogs advance to Conference Finals
- 2011 – Bulldogs advance to Conference Finals
- 2012 – Marlies advance to Calder Cup Finals
Almost all the players (and coach) weigh in on how alternating success has helped fuel the rivalry.
Anyway, that’s all for now. Keep your eyes peeled, the first epi will be out soon. When talking about it online, I’ve been using hashtag #TORivals, feel free to do the same. I’ll leave you with this [updated] … the series promo.
