The skinny

MIKE KOREEN -- Toronto Sun

, Last Updated: 8:51 AM ET

OFFENCE

The Rock's big three of Colin Doyle, Blaine Manning and Josh Sanderson finished first, tied for second and tied for fourth in NLL scoring this season. Arizona's Dan Dawson (seventh) was the only Sting player in the top 20, though four of the team's players, including playoff scoring leader Craig Conn and ex-St. Michael's Major Lindsay Plunkett, are in the top five in playoff scoring.

EDGE: Toronto

DEFENCE

The Rock was fourth and the Sting fifth in goals allowed this season. All-star Glenn Clark (hamstring) is questionable for the Rock, but Chris Driscoll and Brian Beisel have been superb. Ex-Rock Darryl Gibson and Sting teammates Bruce Codd and Chris Seller will try to hustle up floor against the Rock's weak transition defence.

EDGE: Toronto

GOALTENDING

The Rock's Bob Watson was an MVP candidate, while the Sting's Mike Miron was not. Say what you want about the 5-foot-10, 265-pound Miron, but the big man has found a way to win games despite mediocre stats.

EDGE: Toronto

SPECIAL TEAMS

Toronto had the best power play in the league this season, while Arizona had the worst penalty killing unit. If Arizona isn't disciplined, the Rock will run up the score.

EDGE: Toronto

COACHING

The Sting's Bob Hamley beat out the Rock's Terry Sanderson for the NLL's GM and coach of the year awards. Neither has won a championship.

EDGE: Even

PREDICTION

Toronto 15, Arizona 11
