Nylander The Best

In case you weren't aware, William Nylander is very good at hockey. The eighth overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry draft, it didn't take long for Nylander to make a good impression on his MODO teammates. In his first SHL game of the season, Nylander scored the game winner in the third to give MODO a 2-1 victory over Linkoping.

Marlies Defeat Rockford In Double-Shutout Shootout

Do you know what's really weird to see? TJ Brennan, in the defensive zone, taking out Spencer Abbott. Yes, the top point and goal scorer of last year's version of the Toronto Marlies now wears the red of the Rockford IceHogs. I don't think that was his intent; he had signed a contract with the New York Islanders, only to get traded to the Blackhawks shortly thereafter. Probably not the one-way ticket to the NHL he was hoping for, but he's still got a job to do and a team to play for, and the Marlies now have a responsibility to pick him apart and shut him (and the rest of his teammates) down. Neither team scored in the actual game, but in the shootout, the Marlies found a way to make it work, getting the 1-0 win.

You know what's a real kick in the pants? When Henrik Zetterberg completely dominates you for an entire game, racking up points as if he's playing Be A Pro mode on NHL 15 with the difficulty set to easy. Do you know what's a kick in the pants, but with a steel toed boot? When you get a second crack at him and his team, outplay them, and...

Three-in-three weekends are a grind, even when your only travel is a short car ride. That's a lot of hockey to be playing consecutively, and you start to feel it as early as the second game. At least, that's what the Toronto Marlies will likely be saying tonight, after a disappointing outing against the Rochester Americans.
