SETTIN’ IT UP:
The Roughnecks are looking to lock up a home playoff game.
Calgary (9-8) takes on Colorado (10-7) on Saturday night. (7 p.m., TSN 1 /ESPN+) in the annual Fan Appreciation Game. Tickets: https://bit.ly/36Taqy1
The Riggers head into their matchup after losing their first game since March 19 last weekend in Rochester 15-7.
There is still a chance to clinch the division and to get a home playoff game with a win, depending on how San Diego does against Vancouver. (Would need a VAN win mixed with a win by the Roughnecks for them to clinch the division.)
The Mammoth can clinch the division with a win. They fell to Saskatchewan in their last game 9-8 after winning three in a row.
This will be the third and final regular-season battle between these two.
Colorado won 14-10 on Feb. 5, while Calgary won 9-7 the week after.
Jesse King leads the way for the Roughnecks with 12 points against the Mammoth this season.
