- Ironic, isn't it? On the 36th anniversary of the New York Islanders overcoming a 3-0 series deficit to beat Pittsburgh 4 games to 3, the Chicago Blackhawks hope to become just the 4th team in NHL history to do just that.
- The Hawks are the 7th team that have overcome a 3-0 deficit to force a game 7. Obviously, the record in games 7 so far is 3 and 3.
- All season long the Canucks have preached about positive affirmations, enjoying the process, playing for each other, competing 100%, etc, etc, say your prayers, take your vitamins and believe in yourself, brother. Okay, that last part was Hulk Hogan, but my point being all of this psychology sounds very much like the area of expertise of one Ryan Walter. That makes the former assistant coach's dismissal all that more odd.
- From the Elias Sports Bureau " Dwayne Roloson is 5-0 with a 1.80 goals-against average and ..939 save percentage in five career starts in which his team faced playoff elimination. Only four other goaltenders in NHL history won their first five such starts: Chico Resch (first seven), Ken Dryden (five), Jaroslav Halak (five) and Cam Ward (five)."
