Will it be the Stealth or Mammoth? Only one spot remains in the NLL playoffs.

Competing in a close game two weeks ago, the Colorado Mammoth did the (seemingly) unimaginable last Friday by handing the Edmonton Rush their first loss of the season. Trading goals for most of the game, the Toronto Rock netted the game winner early in the fourth quarter against Philadelphia on Saturday to secure the third and final East Division playoff berth and eliminate the Wings from contention. It wasn’t an OT winner like in week 13, but it was the second 10-9 W for the Minnesota Swarm over the Buffalo Bandits this season.

In the fourth game of the weekend that saw the home team win and score 10 goals, Rochester defeated the Vancouver Stealth. With that win and the Bandits’ week 16 loss to Minnesota, the Knighthawks, who secured a playoff berth a few weeks back, clinched the top seed in the East Division. The Rush bounced back from Friday’s loss to defeat the Calgary Roughnecks for the third time this season; in all three games the Rush have scored 15 goals against their provincial rivals.

Can the Roughnecks end the 2014 regular season with a W against the Rush? The fourth and final Battle of Alberta goes down this weekend. The Rock and Bandits fight for a home playoff game when they meet on Friday night before the Bandits head to Rochester on Saturday. Can the Mammoth ride last week’s momentum when they travel to Minnesota? Eliminated by the Rock last weekend, do the Wings crush the Stealth’s playoff dreams this weekend?
