The NBA and Stanley Cup playoffs to deliver a record weekend action

It is the most wonderful time of the year – post-season.

In most cases, nothing beats a Game 7 series for sports fans, players and coaches.

The NBA and Stanley Cup playoffs are set to offer a record number of games this weekend, with seven games for the winners.

Five was the previous record, which took place on the weekend of May 3, 2014, with five NBA Game 7 matches.

This time, the NHL joins the action with five games, while the NBA has a list of two games.

Home viewers may want to have more TVs available, especially those rooted for Dallas teams. With both Mavericks and Stars playing at the same time, it will be the first time two teams living in the same city play Game 7 on the same day, according to Elias Sports Bureau research.

Here’s a look at the weekend’s matches:

Saturday, May 14

6: 5-2 Bruins

A third three-goal period helped the Bruins push their series against the Hurricanes in Game 7. They hope to make history on Saturday, as a win would give them an NHL record of 16 wins in Game 7, breaking the tie with Montreal Canadiens.

6: 4-3, Lightning

Brayden Point was the hero in game 6, scoring a goal in overtime to propel Tampa Bay to a 4-3 victory. At the start of Saturday’s Game 7, the experience is on the Lighting side. They are tied with Stars and Oilers for most players on the active roster with Game 7 experience (18).

6: 4-2, Oilers

The Oilers avoided elimination on Thursday due to two goals scored by Evander Kane. Game 7 could be reduced to who scores first, as the team that scored the first goal won all six games in this series.

Sunday, May 15

Game Result 6: 108-95, Celtics

Led by Jayson Tatum’s 46 points, the Celtics forced the series to return to Boston, despite a 44-point performance and 20 rebounds from Giannis Antetokounmpo in Game 6.

6: 5-3, Rangers

An injury caused Sidney Crosby to miss his first playoff game in five years, and his absence proved too great to overtake the Penguins. However, history is on the side of Pittsburgh, who enter the game with a spotless record (6-0) for Game 7 on the road.

Game Result 6: 113-86, Mavericks

Mavs star Luka Doncic got his first victory in an elimination game to extend the series, but the trend is in favor of Phoenix, as the host team came out on top in every competition so far.

6: 4-2, Stars

Miro Heiskanen’s first goal of the series was also the opening goal of Game 6, which sent the series back to Canada for its final.
