Today is Canadian Armed Forces day at Ricoh Coliseum, which means hockey, soliders, camo jerseys, and... Jerry D'Amigo Bobbleheads? I'm not 100% sure where the last one ties into the others, but the fans certainly weren't complaining. Most important was the hockey though, and the Toronto Marlies took on the Lake Erie Monsters in their last game of the weekend, and homestead. They did so by ending it all on a high note, with three third period goals being the difference in a 5-2 victory.

It's a matchup that never gets old. Once about being the face of English Canada vs. the face of French Canada, the Leafs and Habs rivalry is still about two powerhouse organizations. Tons of money. Tons of fans. Tons of history. Two pretty good teams, as well. It's always a fun night to watch, and it was going to get even better with a Sochi Semifinal rematch. James van Riemsdyk and Phil Kessel vs Carey... what? Peter Budaj started? Whatever. It's still a rivalry game with lots of points implications, and it landed in the favour of the Bleu, Blanc, et Rouge, by a score of 4-3.

Marlies Lose 5-2 to Hamilton

The Leafs/Habs rivalry is one of the biggest, longest lasting, and most important rivalries in all of professional sports. To remind us of this, the American Hockey League's schedule involves their affiliates facing each other twice in the preseason, twelve times in the regular season, and potentially a best of seven playoff series.

I know I complain about this every time. It's not even anybody's fault; this league relies on bus travel and it makes things easier. But it's still a bit annoying. Except when the big clubs are playing on the same night, then there's a certain cool factor involved. What isn't cool for the blue and white, however, is a loss, which they walked away with today.
