Site: 1st Mariner Arena
Radio: WCBM (680 AM)
Outlook: The Blast didn't find much Valentine's Day love in San Diego last Saturday night, losing, 5-3, to the San Diego Sockers. The Blast's second straight loss cut its Eastern Division lead to one game over the Philadelphia KiXX. The Blast has back-to-back dates with the struggling Cleveland Force tonight at home and tomorrow in Cleveland. The Blast is 3-0 against the Force this season and leads last-place Cleveland by nine games in the East. Blast forward Chile Farias padded his team scoring lead (14 goals, 34 assists for 48 points) with a goal and an assist last Saturday. Cleveland forward Zoran Karic paces his team in scoring with 26 points (six goals, 20 assists) despite playing in only 18 games.
