Not to be outdone by the Leafs' tradition of honoring teams that won so long ago that they're irrelevant to the organization today, the Toronto Marlies made a point to honour the 1960 Memorial Cup winning Toronto Marlboros. Despite the team playing at a completely different level, not to mention 54 years ago, it was still a pretty cool pre-game ceremony. Plus, we got to see a ceremonial faceoff involving two of the best jerseys outside of the NHL, which is always nice.
Also, hockey! Yes, it was a game of shots and not punches, but one that Wilkes-Barre/Scranton managed to get a little bit more out of, edging the Marlies by a score of 4-3 in the shootout.

Every time the Leafs and Flyers meet, a few things come to mind. One, the whole Luke Schenn/James van Riemsdyk dynamic (Schenn was a minus-1 . . . sucker). Two, fights. With David Clarkson injuring himself in Friday’s practice, Frazer McLaren found himself back in the lineup, which meant a physical game against the Broadstreet Bullies was inevitable.
