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.
