The Toronto Marlies needed Game 1 to be a serious wake up call. Winning 5-1 is nice, but if you replay a game where you get outshot 50-19 a hundred times, I doubt you get many more wins, let alone by four goals. They needed to take more control of tonight's game, and they needed to be more disciplined to keep themselves from being on the penalty kill for a significant chunk of it. To there credit, there were a few moments where that happened, but for the bulk of it, the team repeated their issues. This time, they weren't bailed out by miraculous goaltending, and lost their first game of the playoffs.

I had a bit of writers block today, and couldn't think of a topic to write about. I have a series of articles I have in mind, but I want to make sure I can do it before I start investing time into it. Naturally, my response was to ask Twitter what they wanted to read about, and while some of the responses were great, I'd like to spend more time doing the work on them.

Bruce McCurdy of Cult of Hockey brought up an interesting thought, however. There was a group of players from the 2011/12 Marlies roster that followed Dallas Eakins to the Edmonton Oilers. How did that work out? Here are your "Marlies west" power rankings.

The Edmonton Oil Kings have defeated the Guelph Storm by a score of 6-3 to win the 2014 Mastercard Memorial Cup. Most importantly, that means that the three Leafs prospects taking part in the tournament have all gone home empty handed. 

Yeah, that sounds about right.
