The players dream of it. The fans look forward to it.
And on Saturday, there will be three of them.
The NHL is wrapping up the first round of the playoffs with a rare treat: back-to-back-to-back seventh games that will go a long way toward shaping the conference semifinals.
The Carolina Hurricanes will host Boston in a matinee, followed by the two-time defending champion Lightning at Toronto and the Kings in Edmonton. It’s the first Game 7 tripleheader since 2014.
“It’s going to be juicy,” Oilers forward said after scoring twice in a 4-2 win that forced Game 7 against the Kings.
There could be more Game 7s on Sunday, with three other series at 3-2 heading into Friday night. The most Game 7s ever in a single round was six in 1992.
“It's what’s at stake, is the biggest thing. Everything’s on the line," Bruins captain said Friday. “It brings back memories of why you play the game.”
