The Rochester Knighthawks have been in this spot before. Only one other lacrosse team in league history has actually been in this spot too. With the new playoff format, the Knighthawks must win game two of the Champion’s Cup Saturday to force what is called a mini-game.
The Knighthawks lost last weekend in Calgary. If the Roughnecks win at the Blue Cross Arena on Saturday, they win the cup if the Knighthawks can pull out the victory. A ten minute mini game will be played immediately after to determine the champion.
The Knighthawks face the same situation in the Eastern Conference Finals, winning game two and that mini-game; they know what is in store.
