Spring 2014 Day 1:
The Spring 2014 playoff season began on Wednesday 16 April, as Montreal visited and defeated Tampa Bay 5-goals-4 in overtime, Pittsburgh hosted and defeated Columbus 4-goals-3, and Anaheim hosted and defeated Dallas 4-goals-3. On Thursday, the New York Rangers, Colorado Avalanche, St. Louis Blues, and San Jose Sharks host Game 1 of their respective series.

Down Two; Coming Through:
Despite trailing the visiting Columbus Blue Jackets by two goals as late as 1:33 into the second period, the Pittsburgh Penguins rallied to notch a one-goal victory in Game 1 of their 2014 NHL Preliminary round series. In the history of best-of-7 format NHL playoff games from 1939 through 2013, inclusive, home teams down two goals as late as 1:33 into the second period had a game record of only 43-223 (.162).

Milestone Victory:
With their 5-goals-4 overtime victory over the Lightning in Tampa Bay, the Montreal Canadiens notched their MLB/NBA/NHL-best 70th best-of-7 format playoff Game 1 victory. In second place are the NBA Los Angeles Lakers, with 64 best-of-7 format playoff Game 1 victories.

Just One Victory:
The overall best-of-7 NHL playoff game record of the Columbus Blue Jackets falls to a current MLB/NBA/NHL-worst 0-5 with their Game 1 loss to the Penguins in Pittsburgh. The former NHL Atlanta Flames, the former NHL Atlanta Thrashers, and the current NBA Charlotte Bobcats were/are 0-4 each in best-of-7 format playoff games.
