CHICAGO -- It will be Team "Momentum" against Team "Third Time Is The Charm" in Game 7 at United Center on Wednesday night.
The Chicago Blackhawks, winners of the Presidents' Trophy after a historic regular season, have a chance to become the 25th NHL team to overcome a 3-1 deficit in a best-of-7 series. Conversely, the seventh-seeded Detroit Red Wings have a chance to extend their underdog run and knock off their rivals.
Chicago is the 49th team in NHL history to win Games 5 and 6 after falling behind 3-1. If the cliche that a Game 7 is a coin flip wasn't used enough, those teams are 24-24 in the deciding contest.
Do the Blackhawks have the edge when they welcome the Red Wings on Wednesday (8 p.m., NBCSN, CBC, RDS), or can Detroit win a Game 7 on the road for a second straight series?
