"Obviously, the stakes are a lot higher and we're a different team," Malawsky told the Edmonton Sun. "That's what the regular season's for, you build and you build and you go through adverse situations. We're in the position that we're in right now because of the regular season, just the ups and downs and the adversity Nike Lebron White And Blue

that we went through. And those tight games."
So, this is what it comes down to. The NLL may have changed its format to expand the playoff schedule. But for the Edmonton Rush, the season has come down to just 1 game. They're just hoping it's not 1, and done.
Calgary needs to only win Game 2 to advance to its first NLL championship since 2009. The Rush were in the 2012 final, where they lost to Rochester. But if they want to get back, they'll need to win Game 2, along with a 10 minute mini game that would decide the series.
"I thought there should've been, or could've been, a holding call prior to that. That's my take," Matthews told the Calgary Herald. But as far as the disallowed goal goes, the right call. Absolutely. I was in the crease well before the ball went in. Besides, there's no sense dwelling on it now. It's over. We move on."
"They're the top team in the NLL for a reason," Calgary coach Curt Malawsky told the Calgary Herald. "They play great every game. They play 60 minutes every game, Nike Lebron 12 Data For Sale
As the Edmonton Rush prepare for their first National Lacrosse League home playoff game, the last thing they want is to be one and done. Yet that's the reality they face after losing Game 1 of the best of 2 series last weekend. And as the Calgary Roughnecks come to down for tonight's Game 2, the Rush know they need to be at their best, like they were for much of the regular season when they posted a league best 16 2 record. "It's not like we peaked early, I think we're still playing really good lacrosse," Edmonton coach/GM Derek Keenan told the Edmonton Sun. "I thought we played well enough to win (Saturday) night and didn't. That's the way it goes sometimes." Yet for as much advantage as the Roughnecks claimed by winning the opener, they're not assuming anything is clinched.
Moving on is one thing. Moving on and dealing with the pressure of Edmonton's situation is another. The Rush need to find that balance between nerves and excitement, then channel that into production and smart lacrosse. It's not easy, but Matthews says the Rush are more than capable.

Indeed, the Rush are looking to put behind them the disappointment of losing Game 1. And if there is any member of the Rush who has had to fight that disappointment doubly, it's forward Mark Matthews. He scored what appeared to be the OT winner last Saturday, only to have the goal called off for a crease violation.
they play hard every game, their defence and their offence are exceptional and they have a top notch goaltender. And they're a very well prepared team. If you think they're weaker on the road or they're better at home, then you have your head in the clouds."
"We won't be nervous," he said. "We'll be excited by the opportunity. If you're not excited to Nike Zoom Structure 20 Blue play this weekend, well, there's got to be something wrong with you. It's pretty obvious what we have to do. It just's a question of which of us comes out harder and executes better. That first 10 minutes, I think, will tell the tale of the game."
