The Buffalo Bandits and Saskatchewan Rush get their first victories, the Rochester Knighthawks are 1-2 and the New England Black Wolves are 0-3.

Oh, yeah, and the Georgia Swarm are 3-0 so far in the 2017 National Lacrosse League season.

Of course, players and coaches have something to say. So let’s get right to it.

“The difference between the first two games and this one was nothing more than that we had more heart. We saw it in our coaches’ faces and we saw it in our fans’ faces that we let them down and that was unacceptable.”

“It’s always a backbreaker to give up shorthanded goals against, but that’s a product of getting run on all night. They just ran on us all night. We got out-transitioned.”

_ Jamie Batley, Vancouver coach, to


“We really pushed the line, but we don’t go over it. I think that’s been key all three games. We haven’t taken a lot of penalties because we’re a disciplined team. We play hard, we play clean, we’re not a dirty team, and that drives other teams nuts.”

“It was nice to get it off my chest. I got set up pretty nice for it.”

_ Calgary forward Dane Dobbie, to the Calgary Sun, after scoring his 300th career goal in Friday’s win at Colorado


“It felt good pending the circumstances. The goals coming so late in the game was frustrating because you want to turn it on early to give your team a chance to win.”
