Things to Watch For: Swarm at Black Wolves

Key notes ahead of the Swarm's second game this weekend

The Georgia Swarm (4-1) became the last NLL team to lose a game on Friday night at Scotiabank Arena. The Toronto Rock won 14-9, entering into a tie with Georgia for first in the East Division.

Now the Swarm travels east for the back half of its first doubleheader of the season. The Swarm will do battle against the New England Black Wolves (2-1), another important East Division matchup and another team that has not lost since its only loss to the Swarm in December. With a faceoff of 7:00 p.m. ET, fans can catch the game on the B/R Live app available through iTunes, Google Play, Apple TV, Roku and Amazon Fire.

Here are some key notes to be aware of ahead of tonight’s game:
