A year ago, the Toronto Rock and Washington Stealth each started the 2012 National Lacrosse League season with a pair of losses, the Stealth ultimately not winning a game until the first week of February. Headed into week three of the 2013 season, the Stealth and the Rock now sit atop their respective divisions with 2-0 records.

Eight of the nine teams face off this weekend. On Saturday, the Rock will host the Philadelphia Wings in their home opener. Both teams are coming off huge wins last weekend; the Rock picked up 2 wins on their Alberta road trip and the Wings shocked all IL Indoor staff and fans with their Friday night win over the Bandits.

Looking for their first win of the season, the Rochester Knighthawks play home opener hosts to their New York State rivals, the Buffalo Bandits. Saturday’s third game will see the Calgary Roughnecks take on the Colorado Mammoth; both the Roughnecks and Mammoth will be looking for their first win this weekend. In the Sunday game, the 2-0 Stealth look to continue their win streak against the Edmonton Rush, who lost their home opener last weekend.

Three of the six games this season have been won by one goal. I’m boasting an impressive 1-5 picks record (thanks for the W on Sunday, Toronto Rock!); while the fans are at 2-4, narrowly (264-260 votes) choosing the Bandits over the Swarm Saturday, and with a vote of 221-220 you chose the Rock over the Rush on Sunday.

So, fans, help a girl out…who ya got this week?
