There's nothing like a Game 7, but the area where the NHL excels over every other sport is when a Game 7 goes into overtime. I love it when the clock becomes meaningless except to tell everyone when it's time to take a short break. The idea that the next shot taken could be the one that gives a team the championship is like nothing else in sports. There is no greater explosion of emotion than when a OT winner hits the back of the net to give a team the Stanley Cup. A Game 7 overtime game winning goal is automatically placed into the history books and likely will be seen constantly by hockey fans for years. Every player on the ice tonight wants to be that guy who scores a Game 7 OT goal. They've been dreaming about it all their lives. Hell, I dream about it, and I don't even play the game.
So please, Boston and Vancouver, let's take this thing into OT tonight. And if possible, make sure the winner is a sure thing. The last thing I want is a video review of the biggest goal of the season.
