Things to Watch For: Swarm at Knighthawks

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

Both the Georgia Swarm (6-2) and Rochester Knighthawks (2-4) have doubleheader weekends, but their respective first games on Friday went differently. The Swarm edged out the New England Black Wolves in a 10-8 goalie battle. The Knighthawks fell 15-14 in overtime against the Philadelphia Wings.

Now the two East Division rivals face each other for the first time this season. Taking place in Blue Cross Arena at 7:30 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:
