Big news out of Calgary.  The Dion is relied on in every facet of the game and logs big minutes.  Never mind the fact that Phaneuf has been relied on even more heavily this round with the injury to Robyn Regehr.  So, now without its two top defensemen, the Flames will look to force a Game 7 tonight.  With this news, the odds are certainly against them.  If the Flames do lose tonight, fans will be wondering what could have been without all these injuries.
