NLL 3 Stars: Poulin, Keogh, Dickson

March 5, 2014

It was a quiet week 10 in the National Lacrosse League with just three games on tap and four of the league’s nine teams on bye weeks.  The Toronto Rock were crushed twice over the weekend including a massive 19-13 beat down at the hands of the Calgary Roughnecks. Several Calgary players lit up the scoreboard against Toronto on Saturday including Dane Dobbie (4 goals, 2 assists), Jeff Shatler (1g,…

February 26, 2014

Week 9 of the National Lacrosse League featured three close scoring games including two that were decided by just one goal. First we saw the Calgary Roughnecks with a big come from behind 11-10 win over the visiting Rochester Knighthawks on Saturday night, then on Sunday it was the Minnesota Swarm edging the Philadelphia Wings 15-14 on the road. The third game was close on the scoreboard (14-12) but not…

NLL Three Stars: Week Six

Week 6 of the National Lacrosse League featured five games and tons of goals; 116 goals to be exact. That’s an average of over 23 goals per game. Pretty impressive, especially when you consider that neither the Edmonton Rush nor the Rochester Knighthawks broke into double digits in their one goal game (won 8-7 by the Rush). The Rush (5-0) remain as the only unbeaten team in the NLL but…

NLL Three Stars: Week 5

Just three games were slated for Week 5 of the National Lacrosse League but all three were were one goal nail biters. The games were staggered just enough that they barely overlapped which allowed fans to catch the majority of the entire Week 5 action. Lots of great players to pick from this week but there can only be three; here are the Three Stars for Week 5 of the…

Can Higgins Compete For Swarm Starter?

Tyler Carlson of the Minnesota Swarm lasted just three minutes in net before he was yanked on Saturday after allowing three goals on four shots against the Philadelphia Wings. Carlson has struggled as a starter which has many asking if he would be better suited as a backup goalie. As we saw in the first round of the playoffs last year against the Toronto Rock, he has the ability to stand on…
