Well the feeling is bittersweet, the 2013-14 LXM PRO season is now officially behind us. Now it’s time for the boys to go home and train for the next season, and probably do a little coaching in between. We are sure a ton of you tuned in to this weekend’s action in Los Angeles with hopes of winning a brand new LXM PRO replica helmet from LaxAllStar’s parter Cascade!

If you haven’t seen this shot by now, you’ve been really out of the loop the past few days. John Grant Jr. scored a goal for the Colorado Mammoth that many are calling the best goal of all time. He actually scored on this same shot two seasons ago as well, but the consensus is that Junior outdid himself with this year’s version.
Seven games went down in the books this past weekend and the results shook up the standings and changed my opinions on certain teams. Let’s start off with Buffalo, then we’ll look at the rest of the teams, and make predictions for this weekend!
The final LXM PRO game of season takes place in Los Angeles on Saturday, January 18th. To spice things up a little bit, we’re running a helmet giveaway contest with Cascade Lacrosse. Predict the winner of Saturday’s game and you could get yourself a brand new LXM PRO lacrosse helmet!
Tomorrow’s LXM PRO Los Angeles event marks the final game of the season for the LXM PRO. In Connor’s preview of the game, he takes a look at who the league scoring champ might be when all is said and done. One of our LAS Community members was thinking along the same lines, wondering who you’d pick for the LXM PRO season MVP.
In my opinion, there are two indisputable legends of the indoor game currently playing in the NLL. The first is John Grant Jr. The second scored an OT winner for the Buffalo Bandits last weekend while playing against the Philadelphia Wings. His name is John Tavares.
The Colorado Mammoth’s roster already included one former NLL Most Valuable Player in John Grant, Jr. On Wednesday, the team announced that it signed another: Athan Iannucci, who won the award in 2008 when he shattered the league record for goals scored in a season with 71. The contract is pending league approval.
Our friend Chris shared this little gem with us. Don’t have a lot going on this weekend? Spend a solid 30 minutes watching some very entertaining vintage box lacrosse. As most of us know, the MILL eventually became the NLL in which we love today. Let’s get back to the roots!
I think it is safe to say that there are going to be some great games this NLL season. Hopefully, with the extra exposure on TSN combined with The Lacrosse Network, Altitude and ESPN3 the NLL can attract new viewers and fans. Just like week one, there were two great games this past weekend. Toronto managed to hold off Calgary and Colorado made a memorable comeback to beat Vancouver.
LXM PRO 858 in San Diego was a thriller last weekend, with Team STX edging out a 16-15 win over Maverik United on a Max Ritz goal with two seconds left. Earlier in the game, Sam Bradman put Team STX on his back with four first half goals, including what was just about the most beautiful low release shot I have ever seen. It was an on the run riser, and Kyle Harrison definitely appreciated the shot as much as I did.
If you could change anything about Major League Lacrosse, what would it be? Chris Rosenthall talks about six things he’d like to see change in the MLL.
LXM PRO 858 is an event that you MUST go back and watch. The match was by far one of the most entertaining lacrosse games I’ve seen as of late, let alone an LXM PRO game. Even though Maverik United is out of contention, the team played hard and barely fell to Team STX with little to no time left.
Upon receiving a pass from brother Xander, Max Ritz buries the shot with seconds left to win the San Diego stop on the LXM PRO Tour.
