EDMONTON - They didn’t come away with the Champions Cup, but the Edmonton Rush are looking to carry over at least some of the red-hot momentum that took them all the way from second-worst to second-best in the 2012 playoffs.

Goalie Aaron Bold emphatically includes himself in that scenario.

“I definitely want to carry on where I left off,” said Bold, who claimed his stake as a starter for the first time in six previous NLL seasons after coming to Edmonton in a trade with the same Rochester Knighthawks who beat them in last year’s final.

“I think you have to just take it one game at a time and don’t hold yourself too hightly.

“Don’t stress yourself out, just play the game.”

While the pressure is on Bold to return to that same playoff form that anchored Edmonton’s near monumental playoff push, the 27-year-old won’t be pushing for perfection as the ball is dropped Sunday afternoon.
