Not to be outdone by the Leafs' tradition of honoring teams that won so long ago that they're irrelevant to the organization today, the Toronto Marlies made a point to honour the 1960 Memorial Cup winning Toronto Marlboros. Despite the team playing at a completely different level, not to mention 54 years ago, it was still a pretty cool pre-game ceremony. Plus, we got to see a ceremonial faceoff involving two of the best jerseys outside of the NHL, which is always nice.

Also, hockey! Yes, it was a game of shots and not punches, but one that Wilkes-Barre/Scranton managed to get a little bit more out of, edging the Marlies by a score of 4-3 in the shootout.

Frazer McLaren wasn't around to "set the tone", or whatever you want to call it in today's game (he's been called up in case of Clarkson-emergency), but I don't think he was particularly necessary. After all, the Toronto Marlies and Lake Erie Monsters were just hours removed from one of the scrappiest games the American Hockey League has seen this season. Steve Spott called out the referees as poorly controlling yesterday's mess, so really, it came as no surprise that the two teams took the opportunity to settle their differences in the way the wanted to today.

At the same time, there was still a matter of the scoreboard, and a hat trick was the difference in a 4-1 Marlies win.

The Marlies named Trevor Smith to be their captain before the start of the 2013/14 season. Tonight, the Marlies played game 56 of the season. It was Smith's third with the team. I don't think that things went exactly as planned when the original announcement was made; but there are worse problems than "whoops, our Captain turned out to be NHL good until the team had to do trade-deadline cap shuffling". With that said, he can no longer say he's undefeated with a C on his chest, as the Marlies dropped this one by a score of 3-2.
