Players to Watch
Chris Mazur: Mazur is still looking to regain his 2013 MVP form, but he’s a competitor so you know he will be looking to have a big game today after having 7 turnovers in Week 1’s matchup. Even if he isn’t lighting up the stat sheet, Mazur has been showing up when it counts, with clutch goals and assists through the first three weeks.
Quinn Hunziker: Hunziker made a name for himself Week 1 with his monster layout D on Boston star Jeff Graham. You can bet that play is still fresh in the minds of Boston players. But the question now is, will Malecek look to test Hunziker or be more hesitant to throw in his direction?
Isaac Saul: Saul is currently 1st on the Rumble and 3rd in the Eastern Conference with 8 assists. With the absence of Michael Hennessy and Kevin Riley this week, the Rumble will lean on Saul to help run the offense and put up points against Boston.
Ben Faust: Known primarily for his offense, Faust currently leads the Rumble in defensive plays and is second in the Eastern Conference with 4. Not only will the Rumble rely on Faust to go up in the air and come down with some goals, but the Whitecaps will have to think about throwing in his direction when New York is on defense.
