Boston Blazers Announce 2010 Season Schedule
BOSTON (December 2, 2009) - The Boston Blazers today announced their 2010 schedule as they prepare to kick off their second season in the National Lacrosse League (NLL). The team posted a 10-6 regular-season record and qualified for postseason play in their inaugural season, led by NLL MVP Dan Dawson and All-Stars Anthony Cosmo and Mitch Belisle.
The Blazers play a total of eight games at home and eight on the road. Boston opens the season with a home-and-home series against the Toronto Rock, and will have two games to settle the score against the rival Buffalo Bandits, who knocked the Blazers out of the playoffs last year. Boston will also play three games against the reigning NLL champion Orlando Titans and look to continue their dominance of Northeast rival Philadelphia after sweeping last year's season series with the Wings. The Blazers will also face four West Division teams - Colorado, Edmonton, Minnesota and Washington - in regular-season play after compiling a 3-1 record against the West last season.
