The Blackhawks are 5-0 when facing elimination in games 5-7 of series over the past two postseasons, while the Kings are a perfect 6-0 when facing elimination this postseason alone. L.A. is also 2-0 in elimination games on the road and according to the Chicago Sun-Times, the Kings own 19 players who are stated to play tonight that are a combined 64-2 over their careers in Game 7s. That's remarkable.

The total for tonight's game, meanwhile, is currently sitting at 5 goals. All of these odds are the opening numbers, so there hasn't been any line movement as of this writing.
