Let’s not forget the Leafs aren’t the only team out for a series win tonight. The Marlies are playing the Comets in Utica tonight starting at 7:00 PM. If the Marlies win they move on to the second round.
I hope you all join us for our GDT tonight at 6:00 PM. Until then, here’s some more hockey news.

Stickers are coming back, folks!
The order is in and we’ll have them in hand at the end of next week. They are three inches in diameter. Do you want a PPP sticker? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing information and I will send you one! Alternatively, you can find me at a Marlies game in May (because they are totally making it to the next round) and I will give you one (or two) in person!
