3 games 7 in a day? What a wonderful thing for hockey fans! The first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs is full of tight series, with Saturday’s Game 7 trio being the best example.

It’s been eight years since there were three games 7 on the same day. On top of that, matches are also interesting for several reasons. The Marquee match is probably Toronto’s Tampa Bay. Toronto hasn’t won the playoff series since 2004, and Tampa Bay is a two-time Stanley Cup champion.

Game 6: Bruins 5, Hurricane 2 | Series Thailand 3-3

summary Sean Gentille

Who was the man? Perhaps choosing Brad Marchan here is safe and boring. He was consistently great and Thursday night was a quiet night outside the street. But he still had a lot of influence. He was the first to score in Boston for the first time in the series, and his line (which two other guys may have heard) was outstanding. ..

What was the key? After Marchan’s goal, it was all about Boston support players. For Bruins, the last couple of years have been true. If they get something from Middle 6, they are a dangerous team. It doesn’t happen with enough regularity. But on Thursday, Charlie Coil, Eric Howra, Derek Forbolt and Curtis Lazar scored goals. Watch out for Carolina when they get it in Round 7 — and watch out for everyone else when they get it consistently.

Important stats: If Boston wins Game 7, it will be the 16th victory in franchise history and break the tiebreaker with the Canadians. If Hurricanes wins Round 7, he will achieve the same NHL record as the Rangers in 2015 and will be the sixth straight victory.

Bruins Worry Meter: 🤪🤪🤪🤪… Momentum doesn’t pass from game to game, but it helps you get into Game 7 from victory.

Hurricane worry meter: 🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯… They are certainly should do it I feel more pressure than Boston. They were one of the few best teams in the league during the regular season and defeated the Bruins every time they met.

Game 6: Lightning 4, Maple Leafs 3 (OT) | Series Thailand 3-3

Summary by Max Bultmann

What was the key? Before we reach it, I want to say this: Maple Leafs did so much It’s Thursday. They have returned from their early deficits and have shown truly impressive resilience. For teams whose big moments of mental make-up are (quite) questioned, it was huge to see them turn 2-0 holes into 3-2 leads in close-out road games. In some alternative universes, that’s the story of the game. However, with two high sticking penalties in the middle of the third (one worthy, the other clearly blown away call), Lightning gave a long penalty of 5 to 3. Nikita Kucherov invested capital, drew the game three, and was eventually forced to work overtime. But even then, Reefs showed a powerful show with additional frames, and the bang-bang play that the game-savvy Orston Matthews started by blowing off the tires continued until it wiped out what was supposed to be. Success story.

Key statistics? 0 and 8. This is the Maple Leafs record for close-out games since 2017, and the current core remains the same. They have another chance to end this story on Saturday. But that’s the stats they hover over everything else until they do.

Maple Leafs Worry Meter: 🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯… It’s right there and played really well on Thursday. They are also getting Game 7 at home. Bad news? Well, you know.

Lightning worry meter: 🥴🥴🥴🥴 … Thursday was almost tied to golf, so this should probably be higher. But they just don’t have the devil that Reefs has.

U 6.5 (-120)

Game 6: Oilers 4, Kings 2 | Series Thailand 3-3

Summary by Harman Dayal

Who was the man? To everyone’s surprise, Connor McDavid was the King with his back to the wall. McDavid started scoring in less than a minute. He had a Tysonbury game winner zone entry and a secondary assist. He then made a strong defensive play in the backcheck and bowed to everything to get rid of Andrias Atanasiu and send Ebander Kane to an empty net insurance marker.

From the beginning to the end, No.97 was our flagship product. With McDavid on the ice, the Oilers scored 20 shots and 3 goals 5-5. The Kings as a team scored 24 shots and 1 goal 5-5.

Important stats: Edmonton won a 5-5 battle, 3-1 ahead. The Oilers special team was very strong in most of the series, but what’s better than them is how badly they were defeated in even numbers. LA was robbing victory by dominating a battle of equal strength. It was extremely important that Edmonton held itself at least in even numbers, they made one better by decisively winning it thanks to McDavid.

Kings worry meter: 🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯… They have a legitimate shot to win Round 7, but it doesn’t help that they’re on the road right now.

Oilers worry meter: 🥴🥴🥴🥴 … They are still 60 minutes from the exit of another possible first round.
