Rock Clinch East Title; Wings Fly by Swarm

“We've got a couple of different looks (on the power play) and when you have that advantage it makes other teams adjust,” Sullivan said. “When you're predictable it's tough to get goals and good looks, but when you change it up it makes them change the way they play you and we're tending to get better looks.”

Swarm transition player Jordan MacIntosh had three assists in the contest to go along with a season-high 18 loose balls. MacIntosh finished 23 for 32 (72%) on face-offs.

Tyler Hass collected 11 loose balls on the day as he and Dan Ball forced three turnovers each.

As a team, Minnesota grabbed 91 loose balls in the game to Philadelphia's 59.

After an action-packed back-to-back weekend, Minnesota will look to get back on the winning track against division rival Colorado Mammoth (6-8) April 13 at the Pepsi Center.

One week after that match-up, the two teams will meet again to finish the regular season on Treasure Island Field at Xcel Energy Center. Both teams have the same record and are fighting for the final playoff spot in a strong West Division.

“It's gut-check time,” Sullivan said. “I see an opportunity now going into this next weekend against Colorado where our hands will be full and our guys will be pushed like they should be at this time of year.”
