Big Night of Hockey Ahead

Plenty of things hockey to write about but I will get to all that later. For now I just want to make mention of 2 big games going on tonight. The San Jose Sharks have a 3 games to 2 lead over the Calgary Flames heading into game 6 at the Saddledome tonight. The Saddledome is a tough building to play in and the Flames are always tough there. Who will be there hero tonight? Will it be Kipper with the save that keeps the Flames alive for a game 7? Will it be captain Jarome Iginla with the game winner? Or will it be Patrick Marleau or Joe Thornton for the Sharks? We will find out soon enough, game starts at 8 ET.The defending champion Ducks have their backs up against the wall in a must win game on the road in Dallas. Dallas has been notorious for over performing in the regular season and then fading in the playoffs. Goalie Marty Turco is one of the best in the game, but has always struggled in the postseason. Do the Ducks have it in them to win a big game on the road or will Dallas shut the door on Anaheim's quest to be the first team to win back to back cups since the Red Wings did it in 96/97 and 97/98? Game starts 9pm ET.
