The Marlies ride a three game winning streak into a weekend set of home games against Rochester tonight (7 p.m., Sportsnet) and the league leading Abbotsford Heat Sunday afternoon (3 p.m., Leafs TV). Declan Kerin will be covering the Abbotsford game and has picked out one of his favorite teddy bears from his bedside collection for the toss tomorrow (if you’re going, don’t forget! Beyond the charity, which is reason enough, you get a free pair of tickets to the Dec. 30 match against Rochester if you bring a stuffed animal).
