The All Lacrosse Crew continue their insights and picks through the NLL playoffs.

Conference Finals

“Muffler” Mike….1-0

Year To Date:

“Muffler” Mike…..5-4

Conference Finals:

“Muffler” Mike Kostiuk:

COL @ BUF (Game 1)

Buffalo. The start of the championship story is perfectly fine for the Bandits. It’s the end result they intend to change.

BUF @ COL (Game 2)

Colorado. The Mammoth have had their backs against the wall for over a month now. They respond yet again to send this rematch to Game 3.

Shawn Slaght:

Buffalo vs Colorado (Game 1)

Pick – Buffalo

The Bandits are a team on a mission after convincing wins over Toronto. They want to prove they aren’t they are perennial runners up.

Buffalo vs Colorado (Game 2)

Pick – Colorado

Buffalo is the team to beat, but I don’t see them taking this series in two straight games. I could see Colorado winning a close one to force Game 3.

Gary Groob:

Colorado vs. Buffalo (Game One)

Buffalo wins.

This is Buffalo’s year!  They have shown how potent they are when healthy, AND THEY ARE HEALTHY!

Buffalo vs. Colorado (Game Two)

Buffalo wins.

As a fan I hope it goes three games, but realistically the Bandits are too strong, and too focused on this year’s prize!

Ryan McMichael:

Colorado vs. Buffalo (Game One)


Buffalo vs. Colorado (Game Two)
