Gather 'round, gather all, folks! For it is not just a Guys Night Out, nor is it just a Girls Night Out. It's both! No, but seriously - not to shill for a marketing team, but I appreciate that the Toronto Marlies made it both at once. It's just good inclusive marketing. Plus, you know, cheap beer, and hockey. It doesn't matter if the Marlies took on a team they still have ten more games against, and it doesn't matter if they lost that ga-.... okay, maybe it does. This wan't a particularly fantastic performance for the blue and white, who dropped the game by a score of 4-1.

I'm still getting used to being an adult. Like, having a job that isn't writing about hockey and stuff. I like what I do, but man, I can count my time slept every night in minutes. I was already sleepless beforehand, but this is a whole different story. That's enough about me, though - it's time to answer some questions!

To submit your Leafs or Marlies questions, tweet myself (@Jeffler) or the site (@TLNdc).

Marlies Defeat Rockford In Double-Shutout Shootout

Do you know what's really weird to see? TJ Brennan, in the defensive zone, taking out Spencer Abbott. Yes, the top point and goal scorer of last year's version of the Toronto Marlies now wears the red of the Rockford IceHogs. I don't think that was his intent; he had signed a contract with the New York Islanders, only to get traded to the Blackhawks shortly thereafter. Probably not the one-way ticket to the NHL he was hoping for, but he's still got a job to do and a team to play for, and the Marlies now have a responsibility to pick him apart and shut him (and the rest of his teammates) down. Neither team scored in the actual game, but in the shootout, the Marlies found a way to make it work, getting the 1-0 win.

You know what's a real kick in the pants? When Henrik Zetterberg completely dominates you for an entire game, racking up points as if he's playing Be A Pro mode on NHL 15 with the difficulty set to easy. Do you know what's a kick in the pants, but with a steel toed boot? When you get a second crack at him and his team, outplay them, and...
