It's as if they don't know any better. I still don't know if it's possible to call the perpetual underdogs "for real", but one thing is for sure - the Toronto Marlies are putting up some out of this world results in these playoffs. Tonight, they had a chance to effectively crush the Chicago Wolves' home ice advantage, and did just that, winning by a score of 5-2 and bring home a 2-0 series lead.

Here we go again. Many were expecting a close, hard fought series against the Milwaukee Admirals, including the team and staff themselves. But sure enough, the blue and white came out storming in the first two games and shut things down in the third, Ending up with a sweep and a long break. The team just wants to play some hockey now.

It's been a long week. After eliminating the Milwaukee Admirals on Thursday, the Toronto Marlies have been eager to get back to competitive hockey again. Don't believe me? Just ask them.
