Week 17 of the National Lacrosse League was an intense week with rivalries between Calgary and Edmonton, and Buffalo and Rochester. And with 1 weekend remaining in the regular season, we’re not done with the lacrosse, or the rivalries. Rochester and Buffalo close the regular season with a matchup in Buffalo and considering what went down for Buffalo last weekend, the intensity won’t be taking a break anytime soon, either. But before we get there, let’s look back at the week that was, using photographs from around the league’s games.
