playoffs series [...] have followed the pattern of this one with the home team winning every game leading up to the seventh. In that seventh game in those series, the road team is 8-8.
There also have been three Game 7s this post-season, with the visiting team winning two of them.[...] 70 percent of the home teams have won during the playoffs [...] 86 percent if you only consider the second round.
Those numbers [...] are higher than at any time since the 1975-76 season.[...] Scott Gomez has played in nine [...] Game 7s and is 6-3 [...] Brad Stuart has played in six and is 3-3. The Sharks will have seven people in the lineup who have played in at least two Game 7s; the Kings will have four.
I would have guessed Richards, Carter, Penner, Williams, Stoll, Greene, Scuderi and maybe Regehr had game seven experience. Is he right that there’s only four?
Oh, I see. He said “at least two” Game 7s. I should learn to read. Anyone care to figure out which four he means?
