Saturday night could see a professional sports championship won in Saskatoon.
The Saskatchewan Rush can finish off the Champion’s Cup final series against the Buffalo Bandits with a win at SaskTel Centre. Saskatchewan captured game one of the best of three 11-9 last Saturday in Buffalo.
Forward Mark Matthews, who leads the team in playoff scoring for a second year in a row, says the post season has a totally different feel than the regular season and he’s motivated by a desire to keep on playing. “You only get so many games, so you want to battle and make the best of those games” said Matthews.
In the Rush’s four playoff games Matthews has six goals and ten assists for 16 points he said he just wants to get as many goals and points to help his defence and goaltending. Matthews says the plan is the same as game one; limit Buffalo’s transition attack and outplay the Bandits during five on five play.
Game time is 7 PM. It will be on TSN2.
