The Toronto Rock have hit a losing skid at the worst possible time. A 13-8 loss to the Buffalo Bandits on Friday night at the Air Canada Centre was the Rock’s third consecutive loss. It also means they have to wait another week to clinch a playoff spot with New England and Buffalo breathing down their necks. Following their bye week, the Rock came out on fire building a 4-0…

Further, the Stealth go into this matchup…

Familiarity breeds contempt. So what happens when two unfamiliar NLL teams play each other? Let’s be serious, it’s still a great game. Due to a scheduling oddity, the Colorado Mammoth and Toronto Rock generally play each other only once a year. Between 2013 and 2016, they saw each other three times, whereas Toronto saw geographic rival Buffalo 13 times. This past Saturday was the only meeting of the season between…

At 4-7 the Calgary Roughnecks are in last place in the NLL West Division and in danger of missing the playoffs for the first time since their inaugural season (2002). With just seven games left to play this year, Calgary probably needs to win at least four more games if they hope to get past the third-place Vancouver Stealth. The Roughnecks currently have the fifth-most goals for (127), the fourth-best…
