The Nashville Predators forced a 6th game against the Canucks with a big win in Vancouver Saturday night. Ryan Kesler played a fantastic game, but Pekka Rhinne was just a little bit better. Vancouver was the better team for most of the game, and the Preds had fluke goals on two lucky bounces. The Canucks are going to win this series as it heads back to Nashville where the Nucks won games 3 and 4. I like the Canucks to advance to the Stanley Cup finals, but if they go back to 7 games the wear and tear will be cumulative and an impediment going forward.
Ryan Kesler is turning into one of the game's most valuable players.
