Attention Toronto sports fans! You still have a team in the midst of a playoff run!
The Toronto Marlies have advanced to the second round of the AHL playoffs after defeating the San Antonio Rampage in seven games. The Marlies will now face the Syracuse Crunch for the North Division title and a chance to reach the semi-finals.
For some reason, game seven of the first-round series against San Antonio only attracted 1,982 fans to the Ricoh Coliseum. That arena can hold 7,907 people for hockey. Granted, there was a Raptors game. Still, it's disappointing and unacceptable.
There's no reason why the Marlies should be drawing low numbers at this point in time. They're the only Toronto-area team that is currently in the playoffs. No excuses, Toronto.
Game 1 - Friday, May 2, 7:30pm; Ricoh Coliseum
