GDB 3: A Mammoth Task

)

Tonight is the second installment of the rivalry between the Colorado Mammoth (4-0) and the Edmonton Rush (1-1). Last time we saw these 2 teams, John Grant Jr. scored the game winning goal with 14 seconds left to win the game for the Mammoth.There has been a rumor that the game may be snowed  in, so follow @NLLBlog for updates.

A Playoff Spot. Neat.
No, your eyes are not playing tricks on you, Colorado is in first place.

The Mammoth have been the top of the league so far scoring a league high 15 goals a game. That is most likely due to having 3 of the leagues top 5 scorers on the roster:
  • John Grant Jr.-37 points 
  • Adam Jones-22 points
  • Gavin Prout-22 points
John Grant Jr. is currently on pace for a jaw dropping 148 points, which would smash John Tavares's record of 115. Crazy.

On the other side, This dangerous Mammoth offense will be facing off against Aaron Bold, who is currently sporting a 9.00 Goals Against Average and a .824 Save%, mostly due to only allowing 5 goals to the Washington Stealth last week. Crazy.

Another thing for Colorado to worry about is the Rush offense who chased Tyler Richards off the floor early last week after scoring 5 goals rapid fire to start the game. They ended with 16 on the night, but could have scored more.

Players To Watch:
  • John Grant Jr. (Given)
  • Adam Jones
  • Shawn Williams 
  • Corey Small
Prediction: 
A high scoring affair. 15-14 Ballerado. It hurts. It hurts.
