Recent history implies that the Los Angeles Kings might have the advantage in Game 7’s, yet the Anaheim Ducks are the higher seed and hold home-ice advantage in Friday’s decisive contest.

There are plenty of captivating storylines beyond the obvious ones that come from Game 7. Will this be Teemu Selanne‘s last NHL contest? Can Justin Williams keep his impressive work in Game 7’s up for a sixth career postseason decisive game?
