Canucks say pressure is shifting to Flames ahead of pivotal Game 6 @NHL

VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Canucks feel like they've planted a seed of doubt in the Calgary Flames.

The Canucks staved off elimination in Game 5 of their Western Conference quarter-final on Thursday thanks to a 2-1 victory on home ice.

Vancouver still trails the series 3-2, but captain Henrik Sedin says the pressure is shifting to Calgary, which hosts Game 6 on Saturday night.

Calgary won Games 3 and 4 at the Scotiabank Saddledome after the teams split the first two games at Rogers Arena.

Game 7, if necessary, would be back in Vancouver on Monday.
