Wednesday night saw three Game 7s in the NHL playoffs, with the Rangers holding off the Flyers, the Kings becoming the fourth team to win a series after being down 3-0 and the Wild beating the Avalanche in overtime, as all Game 7s should be decided.
There’s more to love in the conference semifinals (Chicago-Minnesota, Los Angeles-Anaheim, New York-Pittsburgh and Boston-Montreal).
There are regional rivals.
Bettman saving on gas. Farthest distance in second round is 409 miles but between what 2 teams?— Dennis Dodd (@dennisdoddcbs) May 1, 2014
Minny-Chicago are farthest apart in second round. LA/ANA separated by 45 miles and Gwen Stefani.— Dennis Dodd (@dennisdoddcbs) May 1, 2014
The Bruins are playing the Canadiens for the 34th time in the playoffs.
Four of the Original Six are still alive.
Three Original Six clubs still alive in the East and another in the West. And more teams still playing in SoCal than all of Canada.— Andrew Bagnato (@andrewbagnato) May 1, 2014
And hey look, savvy scheduling!
The two NHL games scheduled for the first night of the NFL Draft include the two L.A. teams and the one Canadian team. #NotACoincidence— Adam Hoge (@AdamHoge) May 1, 2014
