Game 7 Trends

Henrik Lundqvist is a perfect 6-0 in his last 6 game 7s.
Lightning are 2-1 in Game 7 situations
UNDER is 21-14-7
Both teams have played Game 7s these NHL playoffs. Both won and both games were under the total. Tampa beat Detroit 2-0 with the game total 5. The Rangers beat the Capitals 2-1 with the Under 4.5.
Take the Under 5 for 1 unit. Although this series is Over 4-2, Game 7s are traditionally more defensive affairs with the referees putting the whistle in their pockets. There is great value with the Under compared to the Rangers last Game 7 that was at 4.5.
