The Canucks and/or the Stars will go only as far as Marty Turco does. A third win and third shutout on Saturday night shows how good both the Stars and Turco have been of late. When I say that though, the Canucks haven't looked like the team that took a 3-1 lead in the series. Monday night will have Game 7 between the two teams. A lot more people are hoping for the Canucks, as there isn't very many people who took Stars at all.
Game Winning Goal Scorers of the Night
In Detroit, Henrik Zetterberg (taken 7 times) had the bonus point as the Red Wings move one step closer to the second round. It was his first goal of the night that registered as the winner. Game 6 in Dallas saw another big game from Marty Turco, but it was Mike Modano who scored the winning goal on a 5-on-3 early in the first period. It was his first goal of the playoffs... and one team was sure glad that they chose him.
Who's Behind the 8-Ball?
When Chris Chelios scored to make it 3-0 for the Red Wings, there was an imminent feeling of going behind the 8-ball in the series. When the final whistle blew, it was a 5-1 final. The Flames are now going back to Calgary down 3 games to 2. The home team does rule in this series, but with the nightmare of Daymond Langkow's punch and Jamie McLennan's slash, the Red Wings may want to get it over with to save themselves from any injury. Defenseman Brett Lebda will miss tonight's game with a concussion from the punch and as of this morning, we are still waiting to see if Langkow will miss the game due to suspension.
