Could the NHL All-star Sidney Crosby make the jump to the National Lacrosse League?
There are only a few weeks left in the NLL season and the playoff race is in full force. Rochester and Edmonton have locked up a playoff spot in the East and West respectively. Buffalo and Calgary are good position as well and can lock up playoff berths with at least one more win. The rest of the league is clamoring for the last two spots. The race couldn’t be closer as Philadelphia and Vancouver have gained wins recently.
We are absolutely loving Garrett Thul right now. The man was a beast at Army, and when he played in the Salt Shakerz tourney a couple years back he was unstoppable. Now, he’s one of 30 guys vying for 23 spots on Team USA, and he’s ripping it up as a rookie in the National Lacrosse League.
Welcome to another week of great NLL Lacrosse action! We’re previewing the weekend’s games, talking about last week’s games, making picks, and talking fantasy lacrosse!
The Buffalo Bandits won the MILL title in 1992 and 1993. In 1994 they made it back to the Finals where they took on the Philadelpia Wings. The Wings had both Paul and Gary Gait on their team, as well as some other real legends, and they wanted to knock off the Bandits badly.
Welcome to a Throwback Spotted! We have found some YouTube footage of Dallas Eliuk, an NLL Hall of Fame goalie who played most of his career with the Philadelphia Wings, as a contestant on The Price Is Right, of course hosted by the legendary Barker.
There wasn’t much action that went down at the NLL trade deadline, but there was plenty of action to go around last weekend.
The NLL season is coming down the home stretch. It is hard to believe that we have already seen 12 weeks of NLL action – maybe extending the regular season isn’t such a bad idea after all.
Three more games in the books and we are one week closer to the playoffs. Edmonton extended their undefeated streak over Toronto, Calgary demolished Toronto, and Rochester edged out Colorado.
Well the coaching void didn’t take long to fill. Yesterday, the Mammoth announced that they fired their coaching roster, all except Dallas Eliuk who was brought on to improve the goaltending before the 2013-14 season. Making the announcement this morning, the Colorado front office named three former Mammoth stars as the replacement coaches to finish the 2014 season: Pat Coyle, Chris Gill and Dan Stroup.
The Colorado Mammoth have announced that head coach Bob Hamley and assistants Ed Comeau and Sean Ferris have been relieved of their coaching duties effective immediately.
Dillon Ward made TLN’s NOT Top 10 of the week. Check out the Mammoth’s hidden ball trick.
Only three games went down this past weekend, but two games were a one-goal game and the other game was decided by two-goals. All three games were packed full of action and there were even a few upsets.
The race to the Cup is on, check out how your team is looking heading in to Week 9.
The handful of Minnesota Swarm players taking part in Wednesday’s small practice session were a bit late to arrive, but the four Canadians had a good reason: they had to watch the second period of Canada’s hockey game against Latvia in the Sochi Olympics.
