It's Marlies game day! Will you be there for game 2? The Marlies would probably really like a win tonight before heading to Albany for the next three games.

We have some great content coming up later today. Scott has an idea for who to take with a second round pick; and JP Nikota will catch you up on OHL players.

In the mean time you can read JP Nikota's recap of last night's kick off of the OHL championships, or check out Katya's preview of the 2016 IIHF World Championships which start in about one hour!

Did you know the Solar Bears are the Leafs' ECHL affiliate? [ >:c - Acha]

Stanley Cup Playoffs

The Stars win one after being humiliated in the last game. Series is now tied up with two wins each.

Stars Come Back Big to Tie Up Series in OT - Defending Big D
Round 2 is now a three-game series, and the Stars have home ice for two of them. Kisses!

Predators 4 - Sharks 3 (3OT)

The Predators win one after being humiliated in the last game. Series is now tied up with two wins each. Hey where have I heard that comment before? Mike Fisher, best known for his spaghetti casserole, scored the OT winner.

I like the part where Carter Hutton almost takes out Martin Jones on his way back to the bench.
