As you might be aware, ya boys have a stake in the outcome of Game 7 in the Windy City tonight.
Unbelievable hockey, especially that OT in Game 5. Remarkable late comeback by the defending Stanley Cup champs in Game 6.
Some eye-popping stats. The Kings look to become the first team to win three Game 7s in order to get to the Stanley Cup final. The Rangers were the first team to win two Game 7s in the first two rounds and reach the final.
Chicago is 13-0 in Games 5-6-7 the last two years. Holy shishkebob!
The Blackhawks are 5-0 in elimination games, the 2011 champion Kings 6-0.
Los Angeles has already wiped out an 0-3 deficit to win a series (vs. San Jose in the first round). But the Kings have already lost three in a row twice in these playoffs (vs. San Jose and vs. Anaheim) and have now lost two in a row to the Blackhawks after leading the Western final 3-1.
