Ducks qualifies for the Stanley cup final.
The Anaheim Ducks have defeated the Detroit Red Wings by the score of 4-3 tonight in game 6 of the Western conference final. They will dispute the Stanley cup to the Eastern conference champions, the Ottawa Senators.
Tonight's game was definatly the most exciting of this series. Anaheim took a 3-0 lead during the 2nd period and looked like they were sailing towards an easy victory. But the Wings never gave up and played a very good 3rd period as they managed to score 3 goals to close the gap to only one goal. A couple of intense and stressful minutes for the home crowd. But the Ducks hung on to that slim lead until the end.
The Stanley cup final is all set. Next monday night, the Ottawa Senators and the Anaheim Ducks will begin the ultimate series of the 2006-2007 season. Ottawa has the opportunity to win a first Stanley cup for Canada since 1993. Anaheim and goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere has the opportunity to avenge their game 7 Stanley cup final defeat at the hands of the New-Jersey Devils suffered a few years ago.
