With the new 18-game schedule, the 2014 National Lacrosse League regular season nears its midway point with three games on the NLL Week 9 schedule. All three matchups will air live on YouTube via The Lacrosse Network.
The Minnesota Swarm enter a make-or-break weekend with two away games, both of which take place in venues where the Swarm emerged victorious in their last visits. Minnesota's road swing starts at the Air Canada Centre against the Toronto Rock on Friday at 7 p.m. ET in a rematch of last year's first-round playoff game that saw the Swarm knock off the 2013 NLL regular season champions with a convincing 20-11 win.
Later that night, the two-time defending champion Rochester Knighthawks visit the Calgary Roughnecks at Scotiabank Saddledome at 9 p.m. ET for a cross-division battle out West.
On Sunday, the Philadelphia Wings will host the Swarm for a 4 p.m. ET matinee at Wells Fargo Center for the teams' third meeting this year, with the previous two games in the season series won by the road team.
