The Boston Cannons and Denver Outlaws play in the biggest game of this early MLL season tonight, as the only two undefeated teams in the league face off. The game will be at Denver, giving the Outlaws a possible advantage.
The Cannons have their entire roster back after missing some stars early on, and their offense has been even more dangerous with them back. Matt Poskay, Kevin Buchanan and Brad Ross have lit it up since being back. Tonight they will get defender Mitch Belisle back after the Minnsota Swarm NLL season came to an end.
Denver is an interesting team, as they looked like they were rebuilding in the off season. They traded star players like Max Seibald, Billy Bitter and Drew Westervelt. Yet thus far this season they have wins over the Charlotte Hounds, Hamilton Nationals and Long Island Lizards.
The Outlaws have seen great goaltending from Jesse Schwartzman, while on the other end for the Cannons, Jordan Burke has also been as great as he was last season. It is hard to say who has the goalie advantage.
While the Cannons offense has been dynamic with their full roster in place, it has been guys like Ari Sussman and Mike Stone that have put them over the edge this season. I had Stone as my break out player of the year, and he had a hat trick last game. He is one of the fastest players in Major League Lacrosse, be sure to watch him again in this game.
