The Calgary Flames punched their ticket to the second round in a highly-entertaining Game 6 against the Vancouver Canucks in the Scotiabank Saddledome! The final score was 7-4, but in so, so many ways, that doesn't begin to reflect how crazy this game actually was.

The Flames are off until Monday now, when they'll begin to prepare to face the Anaheim Ducks in the Western Conference Semi-Finals.

FGD Round 1, Game 6: Second Chances

After failing to close out the series on the road on Thursday, the Calgary Flames have a second chance to close out their first round series with the Vancouver Canucks tonight. This time, it's a home date at the Saddledome, where the Flames have played much, much better than they have on the road.

The key to victory for the Flames? Desperation and execution. They were sloppy in Game 5 in Vancouver and blew their chance to close out the series, and thus are back home looking to cash in on their second chance. But they really need to play the physical brand of hockey that brought them this far, and execute the game-plan that has made the Sedins an after-thought in games in Calgary.

The Flames are sixty minutes of effective hockey away from their first trip to the second round since 2004. It would be truly frustrating for all involved if they couldn't close this series out, particularly because while they have been quite good at home, they haven't been all that good at Rogers Arena, and a return trip there probably isn't in their best interests.
