IL Indoor's Stephen Stamp has selected the top three player performances from the Week 18 finale of the 2014 NLL regular season with playoffs set to begin this weekend. Check out which players made a difference and have entered the postseason on a high note.
Cody Jamieson, Rochester Knighthawks
2 goals, 8 assists
With his fourth game of 10 or more points this season, Jamieson took the scoring title while breaking the 100-point mark for the first time. Rochester’s 16-14 win over Buffalo was a strange game, with teams breaking their scoring total from the previous week’s 8-4 game in the second quarter. But in both cases, the Knighthawks came away victorious, largely because of the continuously stellar play of their offensive leader.
Brandon Miller, Toronto Rock
47 saves on 53 shots, .887 save percentage
Miller gets the nod here ahead of the other two goalies with stellar save percentages because he led his team to a win it really needed to have. He has been consistently excellent since arriving from Philadelphia and gives the Rock the hot goalie you want to have going into the playoffs.
Adam Jones, Colorado Mammoth
5 goals, 2 assists
The top goal-scorer of the week, Jones is leaving little doubt that he’s back to full strength after his mid-season shoulder injury and, as with the Rock, he makes Colorado a dangerous third-place team entering the post-season.
