Game 7 provides an excellent opportunity for sportsbooks to up their series offering and props. This particular series has some unique statistical trends heading into game 7.

To begin with, Tamba Bay goaltender Dwyane Roloson is undefeated in elimination games. Roloson is a perfect 7-0 in elimination, could number eight prove unlucky? There’s no guarantee that trend will continue.

As for the Bolts, the last time they were in a game 7 of this capacity was against the Calgary Flames in the Stanley Cup Finals in 2004 and they emerged victorious.

As for the Bruins, lady luck hasn’t been friendly to them in recent seasons. Last year they found themselves in a similar position against the Philadelphia Flyers, they’ll certainly be hoping for a different outcome tonight.
