The Colorado Mammoth remain the NLL’s only unbeaten team through Week 4 and retain the top spot in the ILIndoor.com power rankings.

The Mammoth (4-0) got three goals and four assists from league scoring leader John Grant Jr. in a 14-11 win over the Rochester Knighthawks last Saturday night. It’s the best start by Colorado since 2005, when they won their first five games.

Coach Bob Hamley’s team will try to match that Saturday when they face the Edmonton Rush at the Pepsi Center. The game is set to begin at 9 p.m. ET and can be seen on the NLL Network at NLL.com

The Philadelphia Wings and Toronto Rock were the two biggest movers in this week's rankings.

Philadelphia (2-1) jumped three spots to No. 2 thanks to Saturday's 13-10 win on the road over the Buffalo Bandits behind Drew Mundorf (three goals, four assists), Dan Dawson (goal, seven assists) and Drew Westervelt (four goals, assist).

Toronto (2-2) also moved up three spots to No. 4 following an impressive sweep over the weekend without injured veterans Blaine Manning (broken collarbone) and Colin Doyle (lower body).

The defending NLL champions reached .500 for the first time this season after a 13-11 win over the Knighthawks on Friday in Toronto followed by Saturday’s 14-13 overtime victory against the Roughnecks in Calgary.

The Wings and Rock will play this Saturday at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center with first place in the East Division on the line. Game time is set for 7 p.m. ET, and can be seen live online on ESPN3 in the United States and will be broadcast on TSN2 in Canada.

The Knighthawks (1-3) fell four spots to No. 8 after being swept by Toronto and Colorado this past weekend.  Rochester has dropped three straight since opening the season with a 22-goal outburst to beat Philadelphia.

Rochester returns to the Blue Cross Arena this Saturday to face the Minnesota Swarm starting at 7:30 p.m. ET.  That game can be seen on the NLL Network at NLL.com.
