With the victory, Buffalo has run its all-time record against the Swarm to 12-2. Ouch.

The loss for the Swarm drops them a half-game behind the Calgary Roughnecks (4-2) in the NLL's Western Division. The Roughnecks are off this week. Minnesota's next game will see them stay in New York to take on the Rochester Nighthawks, who defeated the Swarm at the XCel Energy Center in this year's season opener by a score of 11-10 in overtime.
