After falling in a heartbreaking fashion to the Dallas Rattlers last Sunday, the Denver Outlaws (7-5) will look to get back on track in a pivotal game against the Chesapeake Bayhawks (8-4) on Saturday at Annapolis, Md. (5 p.m. MDT faceoff) in a possible playoff preview.

With only two regular season games remaining, the Bayhawks and the Outlaws both hold the 2nd and 3rd spots respectively, meaning that if the Major League Lacrosse (MLL) standings remain unchanged, they would see each other in the playoffs.

Following a knee injury sustained during the 2018 FIL World Championships, Outlaws goaltender Jack Kelly has been placed on the Physically Unable To Participate list on Thursday, and will miss the remainder of the 2018 season. Outlaws goaltender Dillon Ward will replace Kelly for the remainder of the season.

Taking a look at the Bayhawks

After riding a seven-game winning streak that spanned from May 13-July 21, the Bayhawks have dropped two consecutive games, including a narrow 12-11 loss to the Atlanta Blaze last weekend.

Leading the charge for the Bayhawks this season has been attackman Chris Heacock (35 points), midfielder Myles Jones (31 points), and attackman Josh Byrne (22 points).
