3. Colin Doyle, Toronto Rock 991
4. Josh Sanderson, Calgary Roughnecks 882

Wings-Titans game postponed

The National Lacrosse League has announced that Saturday's scheduled game between the Philadelphia Wings and Orlando Titans at the Wachovia Center has been postponed by the league as a result of the pending winter storm for the Philadelphia area.  The rescheduling of the game will be announced at a later date.

Both teams are scheduled to play on the road Friday evening and the Saturday flights for both teams to Philadelphia have already been cancelled by their respective airlines due to the pending winter storm, leaving no other alternative travel options.  The Wings are playing at Toronto Friday while the Titans are at Colorado.  Those games will be played as scheduled.
