The Rush currently stand at 3-5 in the West Division and are led by forward Chris Gill with 35 points (20 goals, 15 assists).
Blaine Manning leads the Rock in points with 49 (13 goals, 36 assists) and Aaron Wilson the lead scorer with 21 goals. The team stands at 4-5 heading into the weekend and are looking for a win to bring their record to .500 before facing the Colorado Mammoth the following evening.
Colorado, the NLL defending Champions lead the West Division with a 9-1 record, losing their only game to the Calgary Roughnecks on January 20th 2007. Two forwards, Dan Carey with 55 points (25 goals, 30 assists) and Gavin Prout with 51 points (15 goals, 36 assists) lead the Mammoth as they travel to Toronto Saturday for their only scheduled game this weekend.
