Surviving a three-in-three is hard, especially when the travel day is in the middle. For the Toronto Marlies, this was the scenario they had to power through this weekend; a game at Ricoh on Friday, a game in Rochester yesterday, and a final one on home ice today. Thankfully for them, the Adirondack flames were on their last day as well, having just played games in Utica and Hamilton. Both sides were using up the last of the gas in their tanks, but it was the Marlies who hit the throttle a little harder, winning 2-0.

While many Torontonians feverishly cruised around the city, looking to save 31% on items that are usually 30% off, over seven thousand hockey fans filled up Ricoh Coliseum for some Boxing Day hockey. As always, the Toronto Marlies took on the Hamilton Bulldogs in what has become an annual tradition for the two teams. For the blue and white, this may be their best showing yet, taking this one 4-0 over their North Division rivals.

Marlies Cap Off Weekend With Victory

I had a thought during the first period of today's Marlies/IceCaps game - on a teddy bear toss night, what happens if the opening goal is disallowed? Do they throw the bears back into the crowd and try again? Do they just go through with it anyway? It just seems like it would be an odd situation. That situation sort of happened today, but thankfully for our sanity, it was the road team who had their only chance at a goal waved off. Stuffed animals rained on the ice early, and the goals came easy for the Marlies, who took home a 4-0 victory to close the weekend.
