Game Notes

Remember when the Swarm only scored three goals in the 2012 West Finals against Edmonton at The Hive? The Swarm one downed that tonight scoring only two goals as they were stifled by the Rochester Knightawks in front of 6,294 purple and teal fans at the Blue Cross Arena by a 10-2 score. The Knighthawks' Joe Resetarits, just acquired from Buffalo, outscored the Swarm by himself by a 3 to 2 margin. The two goals scored ties the least ever scored in a game in NLL history tying the Toronto Rock's 13-2 win over the Philadelphia Wings in a playoff game on April 16, 1999. Callum Crawford got the Swarm's first goal just 20:28 into the game. The Swarm then waited until 32 seconds left in the game to get their second and final goal to avoid being completely alone in NLL history when Ethan O'Connor scored on breakaway. Zach Higgins had another fine game with 32 saves on 42 shots but there has never been a NLL team that has won a game just scoring two goals. This now sets up a playoff elimination game next Saturday night as the Minnesota Swarm host the Buffalo Bandits at Ho-Chunk Nation Field at The Hive.

  • The Swarm are 1 for 20 on the power play in the last five games.
  • The season series is tied at one with one game to go which is the regular season finale at Ho-Chunk Nation Field at The Hive on May 2nd.
  • The twelve total goals game scored by both teams is the lowest amount in a game that the Minnesota Swarm have participated in their history.
  • The Swarm finish the 2015 road part of the regular season with a 3-6 record. They finish with their last four of the regular season at Ho-Chunk Nation Field at The Hive and will need to win all four of those games to have any chance to make the playoffs. One loss and they are eliminated from playoff contention.
  • The Swarm lost their 100th regular season game in team history. They are 76-100 in the regular season and 2-7 in the playoffs.
  • Callum Crawford is now fourth in regular season games played in Swarm history with 91 after passing both Ryan Cousins and Nick Patterson this weekend. Next up is Noah Talbot who played in 94 regular season games. He also passed Sean Pollock for fifth all-time in regular season team history with 380 loose balls scooped.
  • Jordan MacIntosh passed the 700 mark for loose balls scooped and now has 707 to lead the Swarm all-time in regular season history.
