Attendance 8,299

All the Wings had to do was rag the ball and they blew it.  Tom Schreiber scored with twenty seconds left to force overtime and Adam Jones scored the winner  at 3:51 of overtime. Where were the Toronto fans?

Wings have not provided an injury update on Brett Hickey, who was seen using crutches.

Toronto improves to 2-1 and Philadelphia falls to 0-3.

East

  1. Georgia  Still tops in the east, but the gap is closing.
  2. Buffalo –  The Vinc singing makes the Bandits better, but is it enough to win the East?
  3. Toronto – Can Schreiber stay healthy and keep the Rock in contention?
  4. Rochester – We hear Halifax is a nice city.
  5. New England – The curse lives.
  6. Philadelphia – Philly gets its Wings and Paul Day gets to destroy another NLL  franchise.

West

  1. Saskatchewan – Defending Champs
  2. Colorado – Not ready to challenge the Rush just yet.
  3. Calgary – .500 is acceptable
  4. San Diego – Team will experience growing pains, but should finish ahead of Vancouver.
  5. Vancouver – Complete rebuild that will take time, but will the fans show up?
