[Open Thread] Game Six, Western Conference QF: San Jose Sharks at Calgary Flames
(Sharks lead 3-2)
While game six is only a must-win for the team down a game, it would behoove the Sharks to avoid a Game Seven because of the dreaded "anything can happen" scenario. Maintaining the level of play exhibited in the past game and two-thirds would go a long way toward guaranteeing this Tuesday is a day of rest.
Depending on how assorted players are feeling, there is some talk that Ron Wilson will employ a traditional 12-6 personnel deployment rather than the 11-7 used the past couple of games. Personally, I hope not; the constantly changing lines have given Calgary quite the headache.
Okay, let's drop the puck.
