Rush aim to stem the flow of losses

EDMONTON - There will be nothing but dirt, dust and unrecognizable debris when things are all said and done at Rexall Place this weekend.

But it won’t left over from another failed attempt by the Edmonton Rush to get a rare home victory this time around.

No, with Monster Jam selling the edges of seats in Edmonton this weekend, the Rush will make the three-hour trip south to try and stop a nine-game regular-season losing streak to the Calgary Roughnecks.

And, following last weekend’s 18-15 loss to their provincial rivals, that might not be such a bad thing.

Especially considering neither opponent has won a home game yet this season.

Then again, the last time Edmonton won a regular-season game in Calgary was in 2007, when Chris Gill set a club-record six goals on the way to a 13-12 victory.
