To advance past the first round of the National Lacrosse League playoffs, the Wings will need to snap a losing streak that is now more than a month old.
The Wings (7-9) failed to secure the homefield advantage in their April 28 regular-season finale, a 9-7 loss to the host Rochester Knighthawks last Saturday. It was the Wings' sixth straight loss.
Now they have to return to Rochester for Friday night's playoff game (7:30). It is the fourth matchup between the teams this season, with Rochester having won all three by a combined score of 42-27.
