Last week we needed a win vs. the Minnesota Swarm and we did it in a big way winning 18-8. Our captain Colin Doyle put up a ridiculous thirteen points. When we need a goal he always seems to be involved by either dishing the apple or just doing it himself. It’s amazing to watch.
We are playing with a sense of urgency that wasn’t there in the beginning of the season. Instead of sitting in last place we are now in a three-way tie for third, a win against the Mammoth this weekend guarantees us a spot in the playoffs. This weekend is another big one for the Stealth.
We have two games remaining in the regular season, one in Colorado at the Pepsi Center, and another in Toronto vs. the Rock. It’s always exciting playing in Colorado in front of 17,000. It’s just packed. Their fans are nuts!
Colorado needs to win this game to keep their playoff hopes alive as well. The Mammoth are coming off a two game losing streak, so they’re coming into this one ready to go. This is a huge rivalry game, which will be one of the best games to watch this weekend. Playoffs are right around the corner and after this weekend we will finally know where we sit.
Game time is 6p.m, 8p.m Eastern Time, tune into www.nll.com to watch it live.
