The Colorado Mammoth headed into this weekend with their playoff destiny squarely on their shoulders. If they won both games, they would clinch the fourth and final spot. If they lost both, the Edmonton Rush would clinch that spot. And if they split the games, things wouldn’t be as simple.
Their destiny still is in Mammoth hands, now it’s just a matter of them either winning in Denver against Calgary April 15 or in Minnesota April 23. For the Rush to get that fourth spot, they need to beat the Toronto Rock and the Mammoth need to lose both games.
The next two weeks will be pivotal.
The rivalry between the Calgary Roughnecks and the Colorado Mammoth is long standing with much of it stemming from playoff battles. This year might not be any different. With the Mammoth and Roughnecks facing off twice in a week with the potential of playing a third time two weeks later both teams will be giving it their all once again.
