NLL Game of the Week on TSN Schedule Flexes for Final Two Weeks

NLL Season Finale Weekend includes TSN Doubleheader

PHILADELPHIA, March 21, 2024 – As “The March to May” rolls closer to the 2024 NLL Playoffs, the NLL Game of the Week on TSN will showcase the key games that will go a long way to determining the qualifying teams and seeds.

For Week 20, the League and the network have selected the Rochester Knighthawks at Toronto Rock, Saturday, April 13, at 7:30 p.m. ET., highlighting what has been the NLL’s best team against the streaky Knighthawks who look to have righted the ship with three straight wins and is back level at 6-6.

Then, in the NLL Season Finale Weekend, the Colorado Mammoth, still in the hunt to return to the postseason, visit a strong Halifax Thunderbirds team in the front end of a doubleheader on Saturday, April 20 at 6:30 p.m. ET. The second game will feature either the Toronto Rock at Saskatchewan Rush or Panther City at Calgary Roughnecks at 9 p.m. ET. That selection will be announced the week of April 1.

The 2024 NLL Playoffs begin April 26-28. Under the new unified standings format, the top four seeds will host a single elimination quarterfinal game. The complete 2024 NLL Playoffs schedule will be announced early next month.
