Kelly Cup Game 7 is tonight.

The South Carolina Stingrays will play the Alaska Aces in Anchorage tonight (8:15 p.m.) for the ECHL’s Kelly Cup Championship. Each side has won three games apiece, and the league wisely scheduled Game 7 on a night when neither the NBA, NHL or AHL finals were taking place.

The most interesting subplot, for those who haven’t kept up with the teams on the ice, is a friendly wager between the governors of Alaska and South Carolina. If the Stingrays win, Sarah Palin will dine on shrimp and grits and the award-winning She-Crab soup from Tristan Restaurant in Downtown Charleston, S.C. If the Stingrays win, Mark Sanford will receive Alaska King Salmon.

Some have called it a preview of the 2012 Republican presidential primaries.
