Once again, National Lacrosse League teams are chasing the Rochester Knighthawks.

The franchise won its second consecutive NLL Champions Cup and fourth title in franchise history when it beat the Washington Stealth 11-10 despite an 8-8 regular season.

The Rock’s main Eastern Division foe provides a good starting point in our preview of the eight teams Toronto will have to get past to win their first title since 2011.

EASTERN DIVISION

Rochester Knighthawks

Their success starts with goaltender Matt Vinc who has been the league’s top netminder on two occasions. Team captain Sid Smith leads a defence that led the NLL in fewest goals allowed.
