Marlies Lose Game 5, Trail 3-2

This wasn’t a must-win game mathematically, but realistically, it may as well have been. A loss today would put the Marlies in an elimination situation with the final two games of the series on the road, a situation you don’t want to be in against an elite team that thrives in their home building. Unfortunately…


Mailbag: Cough Sneeze

If there’s one fall back to not being the extremely large person I used to be, it’s that my immune system sucks these days. I pick up stuff quite easily from people, and generally tend to get it worse. A minor cough and sneeze from a friend of mine has since turned into a couple…



It’s Friday and don’t, for one second, pretend you’re working on anything. You may as well read this Playoff Pool update to see how badly I suck and how my dreams of Internet prizery are being replaced by the stench of failure and loneliness.

Playoff LFR: Oh Baby!

The Blackhawks and Kings play what might have been the best game of the playoffs in Game 5. Also talking about why Andrew Shaw haunts me and the mastery that is Bob Cole.


Marlies Lose 3-2 to Texas, Trail 2-1 in Series

This had to be a radically different game for the Toronto Marlies than previous ones. We knew it, they knew it, everyone knew it. Allowing 102 shots in six periods is not a model for success, especially when you’re sending back less than half of that. It’s a miracle they got a win out of…


You Should Probably Drop By

It’s been a really long time since I’ve talked about the Toronto Marlies from a “people in the seats” perspective. There’s been so much to talk about in terms of what is happening on the ice, that there hasn’t been on my priority list to do so. But you know what? With the team returning…
