Best-of-7 series coverage since Spring 1999.

United We Stand: 9.11.01

Spring 2016 Day 16:
On Thursday 28 April in the NHL, Washington hosted and defeated Pittsburgh 4-goals-3 in overtime. On Thursday 28 April in the NBA, Atlanta defeated the Celtics in Boston 104-pts-92 to oust them 4-games-2.

Spring 2016 Day 17:
On Friday 29 April in the NHL, Dallas hosts St. Louis and San Jose hosts Nashville in Game 1 of their respective 2016 NHL Quarterfinals series. On Friday 29 April in the NBA, Indiana hosts Toronto, Charlotte hosts Miami, and Portland hosts the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 6 of their respective 2016 NBA Preliminary-round series. Results and resulting probabilities from these games will appear later on Saturday 30 April; apologies in advance for the delay.

Game 6 Is It:
In the NBA, the Charlotte Hornets (II) and the Portland Trailblazers lead their respective Preliminary-round series with a win/site order of LLWWW @ VVHHV. How valuable is the “momentum” of three consecutive wins? In the history of best-of-7 NBA playoff series, fifteen times have we seen a LLWWW @ VVHHV win/site order through five games. In seven of them, the leading team won Game 6 at home to end matters. But in the other eight, the leading team lost Game 6 at home and then lost Game 7 and the series on the road. Thus is the importance of Game 6 put into perspective in North Carolina and Oregon in Spring 2016.

Game Comeback of the Season:
The in-game comeback of the Spring 2016 NHL/NBA playoff season thus far was achieved by the Islanders in New York against Florida on 24 April. The Islanders trailed Game 6 of their series by a goal as late as 19:05 into the third period, but won the game: In the history of best-of-7 format NHL playoff games from 1939 through 2015, inclusive, home teams down a goal as late as 19:05 into the third period had a game record of only 24-454 (.050).

Series Comeback of the Season:
The NHL Nashville Predators trailed the Anaheim Ducks by a win/site order of WWLLL @ VVHHV after five games, but rallied to win the series. In the history of best-of-7 NHL playoff series (all rounds), teams such as Nashville which post a win/site order of WWLLL @ VVHHV through five games had a series record of only 4-14 (.222) prior to the Nashville series victory.
