The 2014 National Lacrosse League schedule gets busy this weekend with five games over three days in NLL Week 12. Every team will be in action as teams continue to fight for playoff spots along with the coveted first-round postseason bye awarded to the top seed from the East and West divisions.
Fans can catch four matchups for free live on YouTube via The Lacrosse Network. Broadcast coverage starts on Friday night as the undefeated Edmonton Rush visit the Calgary Roughnecks for round two of the Battle of Alberta at 9 p.m. ET.
The following night, watch the Rochester Knighthawks take on the Toronto Rock on TSN in Canada and ESPN for U.S. subscribers at 7 p.m. on Saturday for an East Division rivalry rematch. Meanwhile, the first-place Buffalo Bandits host the new-look Colorado Mammoth at 7:30 p.m. on YouTube via TLN.
On Sunday, another two important division tilts take place, as only three of the five teams in the East make the postseason. First, Rochester visits the Philadelphia Wings at 4 p.m. before the Minnesota Swarm host Toronto at 6 p.m. ET., both live on YouTube.com/TLN.
