Ten Things to Know for Week 11 in the National Lacrosse League

PHILADELPHIA - iSportsWire -- The National Lacrosse League (@NLL), the largest and most successful professional lacrosse property in the world, continues its push towards the midway point, with six matchups over two days, including the NLL Game of the Week on TSN featuring, Las Vegas at Halifax (Friday, 6:30 p.m. ET / 7:30 p.m. AT, also ESPN+, Fox5 Las Vegas); the ESPNU featured contest of Colorado at Panther City (Saturday, 9 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. CT, also TSN+); and NLL Saturday Showcase pitting Georgia and Rochester (7 p.m. ET, ESPN+, TSN+, Peachtree Sports).

Here are 10 things to know about the NLL entering Week 11:
  • The Finer Things in Life, and Lacrosse: NLL.com has produced a video feature reminiscent of a favorite hockey movie from the mid-1970s that most lacrosse fans are probably familiar with. New York's Connor Kearnan and NLL broadcaster Pat Gregoire have some fun in "The Finer Points of Box Lacrosse (https://www.nll.com/news/the-finer-points-of-bo...)."
  • Great Dhane: Buffalo forward Dhane Smith (Kitchener, Ont.) became the 14th player in league history to reach 1000 points (now 1002) after a two-goal, four-assist showing vs. Rochester, and there's more... Smith is the second youngest (31 years, 132 days) to reach the mark behind Shane Evans (six days shy of his 31st birthday).
  • Metric Systems: This week's "LaxMetrics Powered by the NLL" (https://www.nll.com/news/laxmetrics-week-10-keys-to-riptides-run/) by Cooper Perkins looks into why the New York Riptide's ship has come in. Hint: it's not just Jeff Teat's amazing season (see the next note).
  • Statistically Speaking: Taking a look at the league statistical leaders, New York's Jeff Teat (Brampton, Ont.) looks to repeat his goals and points titles from last year, currently leading the league with 26 goals and placing one point behind Buffalo's Josh Byrne
  • Seals Still Showing Power: NLL.com's Week 11 Power Rankings are live (https://www.nll.com/news/week-11-power-rankings-2/), and San Diego's resounding win over Colorado keeps the Seals in the No. 1 spot after reaching the perch last week. Toronto keeps steady at No. 2 with a tight win at Calgary, and Buffalo moves up one to No. 3
  • Eat and Rush: Famed competitive eater Joey Chestnut took on all comers at Saturday's Saskatchewan Rush game at SaskTel Center. He rushed 110 mini doughnuts down his throat at halftime (https://www.instagram.com/p/C3Aw5bmuEMx/)
  • Rogers, O'Connor Talk Montreal Matchup: Challen Rogers of the Toronto Rock and Reilly O'Connor of the New York Riptide are two of the stars facing off in the aforementioned NLL UnBOXed Series game next week.
