Brandon Francis of the Buffalo Bandits decides to ear-hole Jimmy Quinlan last night late in the Rush vs. Bandits game.  The Bandits, totally outplayed all game, were frustrated so Francis thinks its smart to crosscheck Quinlan in the side of the head.  You can catch the crosscheck right at the beginning of the clip.  Chris Corbeil stands up to Francis and takes a few lumps to the head, but good on Corbeil who knew he was going to be in tough.  Francis is a big man and can fight and he laid a couple of licks on Corbeil.  But the Rush needed this game and that type of gamesmanship.  Good win for the Rush last night.

Now for the Bandits.  They looked slow, out of shape and just all around bad.  They had very little pace to their game and they are far from being an elite team.  They need to revamp that lineup and add some speed to their roster.  Coach Kilgour needs to rethink his strategy because it’s not working.

I would be happy to see the Rush take on the Roughnecks in the playoffs.  I would go to Calgary to watch that game.  The Rush need to take care of business as they take on three tough teams in their last three games.  One of those is against Calgary, a thorn in their side since the Rush entered the league.
