If You Missed the Rush Game – Video

Great highlights from the Rush game versus the Minnesota Swarm on Friday night.  The Rush lost the game 10-9 in a game that went deep into the overtime period before the Swarm got the deciding goal.  The game was a physical affair with big hits and some intense work on loose balls.  The Rush did not get enough goals out of their 5 on 5 set, relying on special teams and transition for a bulk of their offense.  Their defense played very well and with Bold in net, they stymied the Swarm countless times.  What hurt the Rush was their inability to generate offense from their front gate.  They scored their 9th goal 5 minutes into the fourth quarter and then did not score a goal for the rest of the game, going a total of 22 minutes without a goal.  They played hard, but could not execute when they needed it the most.  It only stays difficult for the Rush as their next game is in Calgary against the Roughnecks.  With a record of 1- 3 they need a monstrous effort next game.
