Two KHL games for you today. First we have the Czech team Lev facing their Slovakian rivals Slovan, and then Latvian Dinamo Riga playing their Belarusian rivals Dinamo Minsk. Two great games, and absolutely rabid fans. Great seeing packed barns for a hockey game. I almost forgot what it looked like.

The last time these two teams met, the Marlies handed the Heat their worst defeat of the season so far (5-0). After a so-so start, Toronto has been climbing up the standings and currently sit tied for 3rd in Western Conference with 27 points, just four back of Abbotsford.

The Toronto Marlies beat the Rochester Americans 4-3 last night on goals from Nazem Kadri, Ryan Hamilton, and two from Jake Gardiner. As would happen, Gardiner would leave the game with a "head injury", but, oh no, it isn't a concussion, the team assures us:
“He wasn’t in a concussion state, just not feeling quite right,” coach Dallas Eakins said. With all of our players, we err on the side of caution. We’ll re-evaluate him later tonight and tomorrow.”

Any league that has the sense not to lock themselves out through Christmas and any team that has the sense to mysteriously drive off Theo Peckham gets our business. Where do you go when there is nothing to do and you are still riding high on having survived a Raiders game?
It's time to go to an ECHL game.
