Ready to right the Rig.

The Roughnecks are back on the road this weekend as they finish off a home-and-home with the Toronto Rock at 5 p.m. MT Saturday (TSN+).

Last weekend the Riggers (2-5) fell 11-10 against the New York Riptide and 9-7 against Toronto on back-to-back nights and have lost three straight by only a combined six goals.

Toronto comes into the game 6-1 and at the top of the NLL standings after their win in the Rough House last weekend.

Tyler Pace needs three goals on Saturday to get to 100 in his career, while Jesse King needs nine loose balls for 400 and Haiden Dickson is five points away from 100.

This is the second of two matchups between the ’Necks and Toronto as the Riggers look to tie up the season series with a win.

It was Nick Rose leading the way last weekend for Toronto as he stopped 39-of-46 shots against him. Haiden Dickson had a hat-trick, while Christian Del Bianco made 32 stops and added two assists for the Riggers.

 Roughnecks: Jeff Cornwall D: Cornwall sits sixth in the NLL with 14 caused turnovers and has added 35 loose balls (third on the team) and two goals this season from the back end.

Rock: Tom Schreiber F : Schreiber has 12 points in just two games this season since returning from injury, including a two-goal, four-assist performance on Saturday in Calgary.
