Bringing a National Lacrosse League team back to Philadelphia is a top priority for the league, commissioner Nick Sakiewicz said Thursday. Since the Wings moved to Connecticut in 2014, Philadelphia has been without an NLL team. "It was a legendary team, arguably should have never left here. They brought in great numbers," said Sakiewicz, a former CEO and operating partner of Major League Soccer's Union. "They had a lot of relevance in the city. " Sakiewicz was named the NLL's commissioner in January and is in his first offseason with the league.

The Wings have played their final game in Philadelphia. The National Lacrosse League franchise announced plans Friday to move to a new market next season. The team has played in Philadelphia for 28 years, but the economics no longer work, owner and president Michael French said. "The financial model in a market with so many sport and entertainment alternatives has proven to be unsustainable," French said in a statement. "Finding a new venue with new strategic partners was the only way to ensure financial stability.

It's now or never for the Wings. With just three weeks left in the regular season, the Wings (5-10) are facing elimination from the National Lacrosse League playoffs Saturday when they visit the Toronto Rock (6-9) at the Air Canada Centre. "There is no question it is a playoff game," Wings coach Blane Harrison said. "We seem to have been in this situation since the last time we played Toronto in Philadelphia. If we play our game and stick to the things that we want to do, starting with an athletic defense, we can break some windows of our own. " The Rock have added incentive in that if they duplicate their win over the Wings from earlier this season - they routed them 20-10 at the Air Canada Centre on Feb. 7 - they can clinch a playoff berth.
