This NLL schedule has the season starting and ending with 10pm games. It has a Thursday night game for the first time since 2009. Most importantly, it’s the first schedule with all the same teams since 1992.
But who has the easiest schedule? Or the hardest? Let’s go team by team.
The Knighthawks start out the season on the road at Washington to start out the entire NLL year. In week three they will host their first home game against their rival Buffalo Bandits.
In week four, they host another home game against the Toronto Rock. They have yet another home game in week five and they play Washington for the second time.
They have a Friday night game in week six where they travel to Philadelphia to face the Wings. They travel to Buffalo the next day to face the Bandits for a second time.
The next week they host Buffalo and face them for the third time. In week eight, on February 23rd the Knighthawks face Philadelphia at home.
The Knighthawks go to the road to travel to the west to face the Colorado Mammoth for a 9pm start time during week nine. In week eleven the Knighthawks face the Edmonton Rush at home as a repeat of the NLL Championship game.
Rochester is off again until week thirteen where they host Philadelphia on a Friday night. In the same week, they go to Toronto on that Sunday.
