Many expected the Toronto Marlies to steamroll every opponent in their path on their way through the Calder Cup Playoffs. That was an unrealistic expectation, particularly once Toronto drew the Albany Devils as their second round opponent. But these last two games have shown why people believed in the team to that extent. Hot off the heels of a 7-2 blowout, the team went from series trailers to leaders with another runaway 5-1 victory.

Tonight's game between the Albany Devils and Toronto Marlies doesn't start or a few more hours, but there's already been a small victory involved in the process. The American Hockey League announced their punishment for Dan Kelly this morning, and it wasn't light; the Albany defenseman will miss ten games, starting with tonight.

But then it was reported the Leafs themselves had a scout with doubts about taking the American first overall, instead making a case for widely-considered number two Patrik Laine.
