While the Toronto Maple Leafs focus on trying to finish their regular season in second place in the Atlantic Division, the Toronto Marlies are leading the AHL’s North Division.

The Toronto Marlies are on a three-game winning streak and have won seven of their last ten games.

They have an overall record of 40-16-3 in 59 games. With 83 points, the Marlies have a commanding lead in the North Division. The Utica Comets are second in the division with 66 points. Toronto’s commanding lead in the division is thanks in part to their 24-9-1 record against divisional opponents.

The Marlies will look to continue their hot streak on Friday, March 17th, with an afternoon game. They will be playing on the Toronto Maple Leafs’ home ice at Scotiabank Arena instead of at Coca-Cola Coliseum.

It will be a special treat for kids on March Break to see the Marlies play in the larger arena. The Toronto Maple Leafs will also play at Scotiabank Arena later that night against the Carolina Hurricanes.

With Friday being St. Patrick’s Day and Toronto’s Irish history, the Marlies and Maple Leafs will be wearing green and white instead of their normal blue and white colours. For those that don’t know, the Toronto Maple Leafs were once known as the Toronto St. Pats from 1919-1927. Here is a look at how the Toronto Marlies players are doing this season.
