Any time you can make thousands of young children happy, you're having a good day. So naturally, the Toronto Marlies were looking to make the School Day crowd of over 7000 one that cheered more than booed in their game against the Charlotte Checkers this morning. Of course, there were other reasons for that as well; standings implications and personal pride obviously play a factor. Thankfully for the blue and white, they delivered on all of these, winning 4-1 over the Charlotte Checkers.

We often joke about putting up statues for anybody who does remotely good in the Leafs organization, but at the end of the day, this is a 98 year old organization with a lot of awesome history, particularly in it's former half. This is one of the reasons I really love the Legend's Row idea that the Leafs started working on last season, and tonight, they announced the upcoming additions of two more Toronto greats.

There's something about the Texas Stars that the Toronto Marlies just can't figure out. I mean, this goes for a lot of AHL teams, but even as the team has regressed from Calder Cup Champions to just a borderline playoff team, their ability to control games against the Blue and White is pretty bonkers. For most of this one, it was more of the same, and it ended in a 3-1 loss for Toronto.
