Don’t Bet On NHL Teams Who Just Won In Seven…Unless

Article Thumbnail

So much joy comes from winning a 7th game in an NHL playoff series, but what happens to these NHL teams in subsequent playoff rounds? Do they carry forward momentum or is the mental and physical drain just too much to overcome?

This infographic breaks down the past 24 years of NHL playoff action (since 1986-87 was the year the NHL changed each round to best-of-7) and looks specifically at the teams who won a series (or more than one) in 7 games. The numbers are quite interesting.

A couple stats stick out in particular

1) No team has ever won Round 2 and Round 3 in 7 games.
2) No team has ever won a series after winning the first two rounds in 7 games.
