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.

hartzel1Hey everyone!   Sorry I have not checked in for a while.  This past weekend we played the Edmonton Rush, whoever lost this game was in last place in the West.   We were coming into this game on a three game losing streak.  We didn’t have the lead until the final thirty seconds of the game.

Rabil’s behind the back assist to Colin Doyle sealed the deal with only seconds left in the fourth quarter. The final score of the game was 11-10.  It was a huge win and  a must win because we need to win a lot of are remaining games to get into the playoffs.  This was a good start.

We have a difficult double-header weekend coming up. On Saturday we play the Portland Lumberjax in San Jose and then we jump right on a plane to Seattle and drive down to Portland for the game on Sunday.  We would be sitting real pretty if we sweep the Lumberjax this weekend, but easier said then done.

The Stealth recently just got back Shaydon Santos, Steven Holmes, and Andrew Biers at the trade deadline.  These three bring a lot to the table and are what we need at the back end to make a playoff run.  We control our own destiny and I feel like we are going to go on a run here this weekend.
