If the Vancouver Canucks win Game Six Friday night, then it's off to the second round Stanley Cup playoffs

The team can eliminate the defending Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues with a win

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) — The series has been a roller coaster ride, but Friday the Canucks will try for a clincher in their best of seven against the St. Louis Blues.

If the Canucks win Game Six, then it’s off to the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

That’s something that has not happened since the team’s run to the Final in 2011. But after a wild comeback win Wednesday, Vancouver has the defending champions on the ropes.

And after losing back-to-back games, the Canucks are sure to have momentum after rallying from a two-goal deficit to win Game Five Wednesday night.
