First round peaks with two Game 7s on Monday
Two Game 7s in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals are set for Monday, featuring the Toronto Maple Leafs against the Boston Bruins and the New York Rangers taking on the Washington Capitals.

NEW YORK -- The Conference Quarterfinal round of the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs reaches its dramatic conclusion Monday night when a pair of Eastern Conference series will be decided in Game 7. The Boston Bruins host the Toronto Maple Leafs at TD Garden (7 p.m. ET, CNBC, CBC, RDS) and the Washington Capitals welcome the New York Rangers to Verizon Center (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN, RDS2).

Toronto Maple Leafs at Boston Bruins

7 p.m. ET (CNBC, CBC, RDS)

* The Bruins and Maple Leafs will meet in a Game 7 for just the third time in their 89-season rivalry and for the first time since April 7, 1959, when the Maple Leafs skated away with a 3-2 win at Boston Garden to win their Semifinal series.

* The Bruins will be competing in a Game 7 for the eighth time in the past six seasons. In 2011 the Bruins became the first club in NHL history to win three Game 7s in one playoff year, eliminating the Montreal Canadiens and Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals and Final, respectively, and toppling the Vancouver Canucks in the Stanley Cup Final. Boston dropped a seven-game decision to the Washington Capitals in the 2012 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.

* The Maple Leafs are appearing in their first Game 7 since April 20, 2004, when the club posted a 4-1 victory over Ottawa in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. Toronto will attempt to win a best-of-seven series it trailed 3-1 for the second time. In 1942, the Maple Leafs made history by overcoming a 3-0 deficit to defeat the Detroit in the Stanley Cup Final.

New York Rangers at Washington Capitals

8 p.m. ET (NBCSN, TSN, RDS2)

* The Capitals and Rangers are meeting in a Game 7 for the second consecutive season. On May 12, 2012, Brad Richards scored 92 seconds after the opening faceoff and Henrik Lundqvist made 22 saves as the Rangers defeated Washington 2-1 at Madison Square Garden to claim their Eastern Conference Semifinal.

* Each of the past five games of this year's series has been decided by one goal, including two that required overtime. Of the 13 games these clubs have contested in the 2012 and 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs, 11 have been one-goal decisions.

* The Capitals have won 10 of their last 11 home playoff games against the Rangers dating to April 24, 2009, with their lone loss during that stretch coming in Game 3 of last year’s second-round meeting, a triple-overtime affair.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.

— Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz on signing Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane to contract extensions
