Philadelphia Wings Play Two Nationally Televised Games
The Philadelphia Wings of the National Lacrosse League (NLL) will play in two games to be broadcast live nationally on CBS Sports Network when they take on the Rochester Knighthawks at Blue Cross Arena in Rochester on Saturday, April 6 at 6 p.m. and then again when they host the Toronto Rock for the regular season home finale at Wells Fargo Center on Saturday, April 13 at 4:30pm.
This Saturday's matchup in Rochester will be the third meeting of the season between the two teams involved in one of the biggest off-season trades in recent NLL history, when Philadelphia traded former league MVP Dan Dawson and defender Paul Dawson to the Knighthawks in exchange for superstar Paul Rabil, Jordan Hall and Joel White. The game will also have major playoff implications as Philadelphia trails Rochester for second place by just a half game after splitting the previous two meetings with the Knighthawks.
Next week's game against Toronto, which was originally scheduled to be played at 8 p.m., will begin at 4:30 p.m. due to the broadcast schedule of CBS Sports Network. Toronto currently leads the East and comes to Wells Fargo Center having also split the first two games of the season, with each team winning a game on the other's turf.
CBS Sports Network (CBSSN) is the 24-hour cable destination of CBS Sports, available to 103.5 million homes throughout the United States and Canada.
Tickets for the Wings' final regular season home game against the Toronto Rock on Saturday, April 13 are available by phone at 215-389-WING or online at www. WingsLAX.com.
The Philadelphia Wings are owned and operated by Philadelphia Wings L.P., whose principal owner is Michael French. Comcast-Spectacor serves as the marketing, promotional, advertising, sponsorship and publicity arm .
