With Game 6 fast approaching here are a few notable statistics regarding the series and Stanley Cup [1] finals history that could play a role in Monday night’s game:

– The team that has scored first has won each of the first five games of the series.

– The last time the home team won every game of the Stanley Cup finals was in 2003 when the Devils beat the Ducks in seven games.

– The Bruins are 7-0 in the playoffs when Brad Marchand [2] scores.

– Since 1989, six Stanley Cup finals series have been won in six games. All of the clinching games have been won on the road.

– The last four times a team won the Stanley Cup in Game 6, all games were decided by one goal, with three games going into overtime.

– Only two teams since 1939 have won Games 6 and 7, with Game 7 being on the road in the Stanley Cup finals. They are the Canadians in 1971 and the Penguins [3] in 2009.
