GAME NOTES

This is the first meeting between the two clubs. The Bandits are one of the NLL's cornerstone franchises, with four league titles and four other appearances in the championship final ... The Rush, meanwhile, are in their fourth season and have yet to make the playoffs ... Tonight's game is the first of two for the Rush this week. They'll travel to San Jose to take on the Stealth on Saturday ... Buffalo forward John Tavares is the NLL's all-time leading scorer, having played his entire 18-year career in Buffalo ... The lacrosse legend was in Edmonton last year to participate in the all-star game ... Rush forward Ryan Benesch has seven goals and seven assists in three games since being acquired from the Toronto Rock earlier this month ... Tonight is a rare Thursday night contest for the NLL, which traditionally plays only on weekends. This is the only Thursday-night game of the season.

COMING IN

The 2-2 Rush beat the Colorado Mammoth 11-9 in Denver on Saturday.

The same night, the 4-0 Bandits beat the Minnesota Swarm 10-9 on the road.
