Hello everyone! NHL Featured Columnist Kyle Nicolas here back with you tonight to live blog what is certain to be an intense, hard-fought Game 5 that could make or break the series for either one of these teams.

With the series tied at 2-2, there's a lot of excitement in Anaheim, especially because of the Ducks' big win in Game 4 by a score of 6-3.

Bobby Ryan will be back in the lineup for Anaheim tonight after serving a two-game suspension 

For Nashville, they'll be looking to rebound from a massive collapse in the third period of Game 4, which saw them surrender three quick goals and ultimately drop a game to Anaheim in their building for the first time this season.

And another big question is, will Pekka Rinne be the man in net for Nashville again, or will backup Anders Lindback—who stopped all nine shots he saw in relief on Wednesday and has beaten the Ducks once already in the regular season—get his chance to start?

Keep it here for more thoughts and analysis as the game progresses, and of course, you can follow me on Twitter for updates, news, links and to contact me as the game progresses.

Should be one whale of a game we've got here.
