Heading into downtown Toronto during rush hour is practically a suicide mission. Everything is so crowded, and you find yourself in a panic, over-thinking every step you make in an attempt to get just a little closer to your destination. As much as that’s a description of my commute to Ricoh Coliseum, it could also be applied to the Toronto Marlies’ playoff push. Tonight, they attempted to further push into the crowd, taking on the Chicago Wolves. However, as the 2-1 result would indicate, it didn't work out.

Yesterday's loss to the Hamilton Bulldogs really stung in terms of, well, jumping ahead of them and picking up their playoff spot. However, the beauty of the AHL's jam-packed, weekend-heavy schedule is that you can change your fortunes in a matter of hours. Today was a new day, and the Toronto Marlies were in a new city, with a new opportunity. They took that opportunity too, winning 4-3 against the tailspinning Rochester Americans.

The Toronto Marlies and the Hamilton Bulldogs have a long history of facing each other in the American Hockey League. While they've never gone head-to-head in a playoff series, their proximity to each other has led to the two teams playing each other a dozen times per regular season, plus a couple of preseason games. Over the years, the QEW rivalry has done the see-saw from thrilling to boring, depending on who punched who and how many of the games had come in the prior weeks.

With the Bulldogs moving to St. John’s at the end of this year, today marked the last time that the two teams will face each other. But with the last playoff spot in the balance, the stakes haven’t ever been higher.
