Spring 2017 Day 48:
Results from Monday 29 May.
NBA
2017 NBA Finals Game 1 Thursday at Golden State
NHL
Nashville 3 @ Pittsburgh 5; Pittsburgh leads 1-game-nil

Taking Tuesday Off:
Day 49 (Tuesday) of the Spring 2017 playoff season is an off-day, with Pittsburgh hosting Nashville in Game 2 of the NHL Finals on Wednesday, and Golden State hosting Cleveland in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday.

After Game 1:
When leading a best-of-7 NHL playoff series 1-game-nil (as they now do in the 2017 NHL Finals), the Pittsburgh Penguins own an active seven-series winning streak. When trailing 1-game-nil, the Nashville Predators own a 0-7 series record (tied for a best-of-7 NHL-worst).

Double Digits:
Most consecutive wins from the start of an NBA/NHL playoff season, best-of-7 format for four rounds: 12, by the Golden State Warriors (breaking the NBA/NHL record of 11, set by the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of their NBA Semifinals [Western Conference Finals] against the San Antonio Spurs).

Series Comeback of the Spring 2017 Season:
The Boston Celtics trailed the Chicago Bulls 2-games-nil in their 2017 NBA Preliminary-round series, but rallied for the series victory. This feat was duplicated by the Anaheim Ducks, which trailed the Edmonton Oilers 2-games-nil in their 2017 NHL Quarterfinals series but won the series in seven games. In the history of best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series since 1905, inclusive, teams trailing 2-games-nil had a series record of only 79-637 (.110).

Game Comeback of the Spring 2017 Season:
The in-game comeback of the Spring 2017 NHL/NBA playoff season thus far was achieved by the Anaheim Ducks, at home against the Edmonton Oilers on 05 May. Anaheim trailed by three goals as late as 16:43 into the third period, but won the game: In the history of best-of-7 format NHL playoff games from 1939 through 2016, inclusive, home teams down by three goals as late as 16:43 into the third period had a game record of 0-212 (.000).
