Outlook: Last weekend, this weekend and next weekend are endurance tests for the Blast, with back-to-back games each weekend. Last weekend the Blast won a Friday game at home over Philadelphia, then lost at Dallas. Tonight is the second of consecutive games this weekend, after last night's 10-6 win at Kansas City. The Blast is 10-19 in Cleveland. But the Blast won, 10-7, the last time the teams met there, Nov. 28. This will be the third meeting of the season. The Blast also won at 1st Mariner Arena on Nov. 14. The Force hasn't played since Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss at St. Louis. Next weekend, St. Louis is in Baltimore on Friday night, and Dallas comes to town Saturday night, when the Hall of Fame induction ceremony for former Blast coach Kenny Cooper and players Mike Stankovic and the late Stan Stamenkovic takes place.
