Today the Albany FireWolves play host to the San Diego Seals in Game 2 with a chance to move on to the National Lacrosse League (NLL) championship round.  In Game 1 Albany was propelled to the win on the back of a 10 point night for rookie Alex Simmons in the 14-12 win on Friday, May 3.  With his 5 goals and 5 assists Simmons was able to tie a playoff record for most points in a single game since 1992 when John Tavares did it with the Buffalo Bandits.  While Simmons scored 5 of Albany’s 14 goals, the depth for the FireWolves reared its head in Game 1 with 8 different goal scorers helping the FireWolves get one step closer to the finals.  With Game 1 having a combined 26 goals compared to the 12 goals that was seen in the quarterfinal game between Albany and Halifax, it seemed like defense took a step back but FireWolves defender John Wagner continues to prove effective since coming over from Las Vegas.  Wagner was able to contribute to the win with 2 assists, blocking 2 shots, being able to cause a turnover and able to come up with 11 loose balls in the game.  

After a 3-15 season last year for the FireWolves, they now put themselves in a great position to take Game 2 with a rambunctious fanbase behind them as they look for that championship round bid, but the question stands.  How will the FireWolves defend the Den?
