It's time for the National Lacrosse League Champions Cup. This years matchup features the team with the best regular season, the Washington Stealth. They face a team in the Toronto Rock who look to tie the Philadelphia Wings record of six championships. Fresh off his rookie of the year, Stephen Leblanc look to knock off Rhys Duch and the Washington Stealth.

Leading Point Scorer(Playoffs): Was:Rhys Duch, 14 pts
Tor: Stephen LeBlanc, 12 pts

Goaltender: Was: Tyler Richards
Tor: Bob Watson

Injuries: Was: Travis Gillspie
Tor: None

Game Notes:

* The Rock look for their sixth championship in a year that was meant for rebuilding.

* A sub-plot in this game will be the return of Colin Doyle to the Stealth. Both Lewis Ratcliff and Doyle, the two center pieces in that deal, have not done much these playoffs

* The Stealth held the Rush to one goal in thirteen shots on Saturday

* The Rock were 0-4 on their power play

* The game can be seen Saturday night at 10:30 on, or Sunday at 2pm on Versus. I will have an open thread to chat tomorrow night and Sunday.


  1. The real question: What's your prediction?

    The game probably couldn't have come on a better day, either, since the NHL playoffs are off tonight. Should be good.

  2. I like the Stealth at home. The Rock are a good team but the Stealth can score.
