The Edmonton Rush can’t explain it. And frankly, they probably don’t want to. They just want to win games and they’ve done that, to a degree. Their biggest hurdle is an odd one, to say the least, as they come into today’s game against the visiting Rochester Knighthawks with a 1-5 home record. They’re 7-1 on the road. “The record at home is more coincidence than anything, I believe,” coach and GM Derek Keenan told the Edmonton Journal. “We’ve had some good games at home and not won and we’ve had a couple of not-so-good games on the road and won. Sometimes that’s the nature of the beast in this league.” Still, the Rush would like know they can win at Rexall Place and today would be a good time to prove that to themselves. A win today gives the franchise its first-ever home playoff date, and they would love nothing more than to reward their fans.
