This game could turn into a major war. The St. Louis Blues have a chance to return to the Western Conference Finals for the first time in 15 years and they want it bad. The Dallas Stars however have been struggling offensively and will likely unload everything in their arsenal to prevent going home for the season. The Stars offense must be feeling the pressure because they have only been able to score 5 times in the last 3 games in this series. Ouch!
Most of that lack of scoring from the Stars is due to lack of production from their special teams and the incredible defense of St. Louis. The Stars have been unable to capitalize on second chance shots, power plays and rebounds while the Blues have done a great job of protecting the puck after deflected shots. Meanwhile, both teams have been falling in line behind their veteran captains who have done well dictating the pace of this series.
Now that the Stars have their backs against the wall, look for an explosion from either side, led by their capable leaders. The puck will be flying in this game 6 and the fists may be flying too. It is a must-watch hockey game for any real fan. The winner of this series will either face the Nashville Predators or the San Jose Sharks in the Western Conference Finals and for a shot at the Stanley Cup Finals. The Sharks have a 3-2 lead in that series and are headed to Tennessee for game 6 on May 9th.
