A Playoff Rematch in Colorado.

The Riggers take on the Mammoth in their second of two straight road games Saturday night at 7 p.m. MT (TSN+).

Calgary (2-2) got back to .500 with a commanding 14-7 win over Vancouver last weekend. Tanner Cook led the way offensively with five goals and two assists, while Christian Del Bianco was named NLL Player Of The Week making 48 saves and allowing just seven goals.

For the Mammoth (1-4), they have lost back-to-back games to Buffalo and San Diego by 12-8 scores.

Jesse King needs six points to reach 400 in his NLL career. He has scored six or more points in every game so far this season. Haiden Dickson needs two goals to get to 50 in his career. He leads the team with 10.

This is the only regular-season matchup between these two teams this season. The last time they faced off the Mammoth knocked the Riggers out of the playoffs in Game 3 of the best-of-three semi-finals last year.
