It's really cool when the Toronto Marlies play at the Air Canada Centre. The entire building is pretty full, I'm still recovering from eating tons of seafood two days before, Team Canada is a good side subject, and the Hamilton Bulldogs always put up a good...

This isn't the "Boxing Day Classic", is it? I haven't seen my extended family in a while. The upper bowl is tarped off. Nobody on Team Canada is under 20..

This year, the Marlies decided that it would be a good idea to have two games here instead of one. It's a little weird, but I can appreciate it. It keeps the ice in use during the Olympics, gives more guys an opportunity to to play in the building they hope to make it to permanently, and boosts attendance (even with no upper bowl, they sold 3000 more tickets than a Ricoh sellout). It's easier to get to the rink, and it's a cheap way for families to bring their kids where the Leafs way on.. Family Day! Most of all, it was a successful night out for the blue and white, beating the Texas Stars by a score of 4-1.

After a close exhibition match against Farjestad BK, it was time for the Toronto Marlies to kick off the part of their weekend that involves actual points on the standings. With a key few names back in the lineup, things were looking bright for the blue and white as they took on the Utica Comets, affiliates of the Vancouver Canucks. The result, however, was not what they were looking for, as a last minute goal gave Toronto a 2-1 loss.

We skipped over yesterday's USA-Russia game, for two reasons. One, I overslept and missed it. Two, everybody was screaming T.J. Oshie's name and trying to talk about the Leafs players would have just been like trying to yell for undivided attention in a downtown Tokyo intersection.
