The force was with the Toronto Marlies on Star Wars Night, but today is just another Saturday. At least, as far as marketing promotions go. On the ice, however, it was a different story - each weekend afternoon matchup carries just a little more weight than the one prior. Today, they took on the Rochester Americans, a team way behind them in the standings but still capable of preventing them from points, and capitalized, winning 4-1 and tying the Hamilton Bulldogs for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

As you may have heard by now, the Toronto Maple Leafs have signed free agent Russian winger Nikita Soshnikov to a three-year entry level contract. Most recently, the 21-year old Soshnikov played for Atlant Mytishchi in the KHL, scoring 14 goals and 32 points in 57 games played. That points total was fourth best among U24 players in the league.

Now that the news has broke, we're seeing more and more quotes coming out of Soshnikov and the Russian media. Not that I know anything about him personally, but he's certainly saying all of the right things.
