Calgary: One Win to go

To seize everything you ever wanted-One moment

Flames seek series clincher Saturday in Stanley Cup Finals

CALGARY, Alberta (Ticker) - The "C of Red" is preparing for a
championship party.

The Calgary Flames have a chance to send their red-clad fans
into a frenzy when they host the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday
night in Game Six of the Stanley Cup Finals.

Oleg Saprykin scored 14:40 into overtime to give the Flames a
3-2 victory at Tampa Bay on Thursday and a three games to two
lead in the series.

The Flames captured their only Stanley Cup title in 1989 with
stars such as Al MacInnis, Gary Suter, Doug Gilmour, Joe Mullen,
Joe Nieuwendyk and Theo Fleury, winning the clinching Game Six
of the Finals at Montreal.

Not much was expected from this group which features star right
wing Jarome Iginla and goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff. But after
finishing sixth in the Western Conference, the Flames have
knocked off the top three seeds - Detroit, San Jose and
Vancouver - in this improbable run. Now they are one win away
from the Stanley Cup title.
