2015 Head to Head 3-1 Minnesota

Black Wolves are coming off a loss to Calgary. Where the offense struggled to get going. After hanging 17 on Vancouver. Shawn Evans and Kevin Crowley need to show up. Pat Saunders can only do so much.

The Swarm are led by Randy Staats 13 Pts (6g 7a) and Johnny Powless 11 Pts (6g 5a) Expect Brodie McDonald to get the start for the Swarm. Look for the Swarm to tighten up the defense.


The Rock jumped out to an early 2-0 lead. On goals by Kasey Beirnes and Brock Sorensen. The Rush came awake soon after that. Scoring the next six goals. Before the Rock answered. The hole was too deep. As the Rush defense went to work. To stife the Rock offense.

Game two of the NLL Champions Cup final goes Friday June 5 in Edmonton at 9:30 EST.
