The Calgary Roughnecks, Edmonton Rush and Sportsnet are pleased to announce a partnership for live broadcasts of all four matchups between the two teams for the 2012 National Lacrosse League season.

The agreement will not only give passionate fans of the Roughnecks and Rush a chance to see some the world’s best lacrosse players competing in one of the NLL’s fiercest rivalries.  It will also allow for those who have yet to discover the sport a terrific opportunity to watch indoor lacrosse played at its highest level.

“We are very excited to partner with Sportsnet and the Edmonton Rush to bring indoor lacrosse to a wider audience through these broadcasts,” said Calgary Roughnecks Governor John Bean.  “Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing sports in Canada and this is an opportunity to introduce even more fans to this great game and the National Lacrosse League.”

“This is a tremendous opportunity for the Rush and Roughnecks to showcase NLL lacrosse across western Canada, and in particular, the chance to show how the game and the talented players on both teams bring out the best in the Battle of Alberta,” said Gord Sawyer, Rush Team President.

All four games will be aired live on Sportsnet, beginning in Week #7 when the Roughnecks host the Rush at the Scotiabank Saddledome on Saturday, February 18.  Game time is 7 p.m. MST on Sportsnet West and Pacific.

On Week #10 of the schedule, the provincial battle heats up as Calgary and Edmonton will clash in a home-and-home weekend set. On Friday, March 9, the Rush will host the Roughnecks at Rexall Place for the first time this season.  The following night, Saturday, March 10, the Roughnecks are back on their home floor.  Both games are 7 p.m. MST starts.

The season series concludes with a contest in Week #16 when Edmonton hosts Calgary on Saturday, April 21 with the opening faceoff at 8 p.m. MST.
Calgary holds an all-time record of 16-4 against Edmonton in regular-season play and have won six of the last seven meetings including a pair of overtime victories.  The Rush, however, hold the lone victory in playoff action between the teams after Edmonton’s 11-7 victory over the defending NLL Champion Roughnecks in the 2010 West Division semifinal.
