Game seven:  win or go home

This magnificent series between the Devils and Hurricanes will come to an end tonight.  It’s been an evenly matched, well played fun series to watch. 

The last three times these teams have played in the postseason (twice in the first round, once in the second), the series winner has gone on to play in the Stanley Cup finals.

Carolina played two game sevens in 2006.  Both at home, both were wins.  The last time this franchise played a game seven on the road was a 3-2 overtime loss to Montréal on May 1 1992 in the Adams Division semifinal. 

More pregame stuff in a few hours.
