Keys to the Game
This will be the third and final meeting between the two Eastern Conference rivals – at least in the regular season – with D.C. going for a four game series sweep. Philadelphia is charging towards the playoffs having won three of their last four contests, with their only loss coming against the Current, and if they win on Saturday they will secure their spot in the postseason. While D.C. has won each of the previous three matchups all of them have been relatively close in score with the Current prevailing by margins of 3, 2 and 6 in Week 1, 4 and 8 respectively.

Players to Watch
Alan Kolick: Kolick is receiving a ton of deserved attention as the likely league MVP. Kolick is the best player on the MLU’s best team and consistently provides whatever the Current need on offense. He had a bit of a rough game against the Rumble last week, tallying just two assists. But Kolick still leads the league in assists and should be a key cog for D.C. in their final regular season contest.
Jeff Wodatch: Wodatch will most likely be D.C.’s top down field threat on Saturday with Peter Prial expected to miss the contest. Wodatch is deceptively fast and always seems to create a ton of separation between himself and his defender. Kolick and the Current’s other top handlers will have to keep an eye out for Wodatch breaking away from the field on Saturday night.
