NATIONAL LACROSSE LEAGUE CHAMPION TO BE CROWNED SATURDAY, MAY 19 ON CBS SPORTS NETWORK

       The Edmonton Rush and Rochester Knighthawks battle for National Lacrosse League’s Champions Cup on Saturday, May 19 (7:30 PM, ET) on CBS Sports Network. Dave Ryan and analyst Casey Powell call the action from Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, N.Y.

        Edmonton looks to capture its first-ever NLL Championship after entering the 2012 postseason with the League’s worst regular season record at 8-10. The Rush claimed the West Division with wins over top-seeded Calgary, followed by Minnesota. Rochester, who finished the regular season 9-9, has won two Cups in franchise history (in 1997 and 2007). The Knighthawks enter the NLL final with playoff wins over Philadelphia and Toronto.
