came out wearing (John Tavares') jersey and said he wanted the win so that JT could come back and play in front of his home fans one more time," Ryan Benesch told the Buffalo News. It worked to the tune of a 15 13 win, the result of which extends Buffalo's season and ends Toronto's.
In a separate segment, Toronto coach John Lovell was not so kind when assessing his defense against Buffalo. "Our defence was horrendous. Every time we got close, or tied, or got ahead, we gave up an easy goal. They didn't have to work for a thing tonight. Not a thing," he said. (Toronto Sun) . Saturday's win officially was Anthony Cosmo's first NLL playoff win after 7 losses, but he did want to set the record straight. "I got the game ball because it's my first playoff win. But I want to clear the air. I won in San Jose, but I got pulled halfway through the game so I didn't get credit for it. So this time, I got to finish it and get credit for it," he said. (Buffalo News) . With so much offensive talent for the Calgary Roughnecks, the only real mystery wasn't if they'd win in overtime against Colorado, but who would score the winner. Enter Shawn Evans. "For a small guy, he's got one of the biggest hearts and he plays 10 feet tall out there. You talk about David and Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit Pure Platinum/University Red Men's Shoe
Goliath, and that's Shawny Evans he'll slay anyone at any time," said Calgary coach Curt Malawsky. (Calgary Sun).
Earlier this week, Buffalo Bandits assistant coach Dan Teat said all the talking had been exhausted by the Bandits as they searched for ways to snap an 8 game losing streak. So before Saturday's National Lacrosse League playoff game against the Toronto Rock, Bandits coach Troy Cordingley put into motion the old adage that actions speak louder than words. "He Nike Vapormax Plus Electric Blue
"We just weren't very good plain and simple," Toronto coach John Lovell told the Toronto Star. "We played well down the stretch but, in my mind, we just gift wrapped that one. We have to play better defensively, and we didn't look after the ball as well as we have on other occasions."
As for Saturday, the Bandits didn't get it done with great defense as much as they did with timely defense. And it helps when Benesch scores 7 goals, 4 of which game in the first half as Buffalo built an 8 7 halftime lead. The Buffalo defense that allowed just 2 goals on 14 shots in the first quarter backed off a bit in the second quarter, allowing 5 goals on 16 shots. And while Colin Doyle scored 3 goals and Rob Hellyer scored 1 to help Toronto keep close to the pace in the first half, the Bandits shut that duo down in the second half.
"It looked good on him," Tavares told the Toronto Star of seeing his jersey on his coach. "I said, 'No problem as long as people understand it's not about me, it's about the team and it's about winning.' "
So 13 goals allowed wasn't exactly a sparkling defensive effort on the surface, but it was enough to earn Cosmo his first NLL playoff win. And given the way he's been an anchor for Buffalo throughout its skid, he certainly deserved it after coming through strong again on Saturday with 41 saves.
"We thought Doyle was one of the best players out there, and I wanted my defense to get up on him more," goalie Anthony Cosmo told the newspaper.

"We answered our critics, and we answered ourselves. It's more important that we answered ourselves. We found a way to win," Cordingley told the Buffalo News.

As for the Rock, early defensive miscues kept them on their heels against a team that came in hungry and eager to prove it belonged in the NLL playoffs, despite its second half struggles.
Doyle and Hellyer were without goals in the second half, and Stephan Leblanc was without a goal on 6 shots for the game, leaving the scoring burden to others who perhaps were not accustomed. Still, Kasey Beirnes (4 goals) and rookie Nick Diachenko (3) responded soundly, but it wasn't enough for Toronto as the Bandits got 2 more from Benesch in the third quarter and outscored Toronto 5 3 in the fourth quarter.
