It's the much-anticipated rematch with the Swarm Saturday night in Georgia, following last spring's loss in the Champion's Cup final.
There has been much reflection since the 15-14 overtime loss at SaskTel Centre clinched Georgia's first National Lacrosse League title and ending Saskatchewan's quest for three straight.
The team remembers relinquishing a four-goal second-half lead in an 18-14 game one loss in Georgia and the SaskTel Centre setback that followed is still the talk of the local lacrosse community.
A turnover on a routine set play possession in the dying seconds of regulation with the Rush net empty resulted in the tying goal, with the overtime winner about a minute into extra time.
The Rush routed the Swarm 24-9 in a SaskTel Centre preseason clash, but the November, 18 victory did little to ease the pain of Champion's Cup defeat.
Mark Matthews had four goals in that game with Ryan Keenan, Curtis Knight, Marty Dinsdale and Robert Church all recording hat tricks. Keenan was first-star after recording a 7-point performance.
Matthews is tied for third in the league points race with 18, while Ben McIntosh is tied atop the goal scoring parade with 10. Both have played one fewer game than those who also occupy prime perches in NLL's statistics
The game in the deep south is a chance for the Rush to raise their 2018 record to 3-0, which would be their best start since 2014 and purge the memories of the Champion's Cup loss and an 18-10, 2017 season-opening setback in Georgia.
Game time is 6;05 p.m., with the Rush-Hour pregame show on 98-COOL signing on at 5 o'clock.
