VS. CLEVELAND CRUNCH
* WHERE: Richfield Coliseum.
* WHEN: Tonight, 7:35.
* RADIO: WCAO-AM 600.
* OUTLOOK: Because there are three games in the next five days, Hank Henry is expected to start for the Blast (17-15) when it tries to secure a victory in Cleveland, where it has been outscored 20-5 in two games. The Blast leads the season series, 3-2. The team will be without Domenic Mobilio (32 goals, 18 assists) and Mike Stankovic (12 goals, 22 assists), which means rookies Chris Haywood (three goals, two assists), Chris Simon (two goals, two assists) and Dominic Feltham will be asked to contribute heavily, as will second-year players Joe Barger and David Vaudreuil.
"You only have to look at that team to see a very potent offense," Blast coach Kenny Cooper said of the Crunch (13-19). "It's like an All-Star team. It has about 10 guys who have been All-Stars -- Bernie James, Mike Sweeney, Hector Marinaro, Kai Haaskivi, George Fernandez, David Haggan, Michael King.
