From the Branches: Chasing the cup

New, comments

Mitch Marner is in action tonight and he could add a fourth MVP trophy to his cabinet. Oh, he could also with the cup looking trophy thing? I think it's called the Memories Cup or something.

Good morning! Big, big Leafs day today. The Baby Leafs are going to try to claw their way back into their series against the Hershey Bears (they're currently down 3-1 and are on the cusp of elimination). Mitch Marner, J.J. Piccinich, and the Knights play Martins Dzierkals and the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies in the Memorial Cup final. Should be fun.
