Toronto Marlies 0, San Antonio Rampage 3

Though the Toronto Maple Leafs didn't make the playoffs this year, its farm team, the Toronto Marlies did.

This afternoon was game 6 in the first round with the San Antonio Rampage (Phoenix Coyotes' farm team). Toronto was leading the series but lost 3-0. So the deciding game will be tomorrow evening.

We live just north of the Ricoh Centre so walked down.

It's great hockey at great prices ... yet they never come close to selling out.

We bought cheap tickets ($12) and moved down a few rows when we got there as there were lots of empty seats.

During the first intermission, we moved to a lower section by the other net.

There were fights during the first and second periods.

It's good hockey and a winning team yet only 1,829 fans showed up.

Tonight is game 7. I hope they move on to the next round and more fans show up.

Looks like fun. It was a beautiful weekend weather wise. I took my baby out to the park as well. Too bad things are taking a turn, with rain and snow showers the next few days. Its easy to get spoiled when it comes to good weather. Have a great day.
