They say they’re the best two words in sports, though they’re a lot less sweet for the team that was up 3-2.
Still, Saturday afternoon in PNC Arena should be a doozy, as the Bruins and Hurricanes facing off for one final time with a trip to the second round on the line.
So far, it’s been the home team that has held serve, as every single game has resulted in at least a two-goal victory for the team playing in front of its home fans.
So now it all comes down to this.

- The Carolina Hurricanes, since relocation, are a perfect 5-0 in game seven. The last was 2019 in Washington. The last time the Canes played a game seven at home, they hoisted the cup.
- Derek Stepan (7) and Ian Cole (6) have the most game seven experience of anyone on the Hurricanes.
- Andrei Svechnikov recorded the third multi-goal game of his young playoff career in game six.
- Jaccob Slavin is the first defensemen to ever skate in 36 playoff games with committing a penalty. That streak came to an end in game six, as he dumped the puck over the glass for a delay of game.
