Monday May 6 Toronto at Georgia 7:30 PM ET

Monday May 6 Calgary at San Diego 10:30 PM ET

Press Release

So you all ready for some Monday night lacrosse? Which we reported on earlier. Did we ever tell you that NLL season SHOULD NOT be ending June 3 EVER?

Less is more when is comes to the NLL. However, the head office never got the memo.

The league needs to start the season earlier to avoid finishing in freaking June. Unless the NLL reduces the number of regular season games. We know reducing the number of regular season game’s ain’t happening. Its just wishful thinking on our part.

Interesting to note that the dates listed for the East and West Division Final and the NLL Finals include Monday.




Due to the arenas in San Diego and Georgia already being booked. Fans will get watch some Monday Night lacrosse.  Hopefully it will not become the norm anytime soon.

Hey at least its not Friday morning at 10 am right? Or a Tuesday night in Baltimore.

Monday May 6 Toronto at Georgia

Monday May 6 TBD at San Diego

So due to Disney on Ice, the San Diego Seals will host the West Division Semi-Final on Monday May 6. Face off is set for 7:30 PM ET.

We do not think that the Seals home playoff game on Monday May 6 will be very well attended, just a hunch.
