It all comes down to tonight. The last team I cared about was eliminated in the semifinal round, so throughout the NHL finals, if asked what I was rooting for, my answer was "Game Seven." And here we are! The Edmonton Oilers have pulled off an improbable comeback after losing the first two game of the series to the Carolina Hurricanes. I seem to recall hearing that if they win tonight, they'll be the first team to come back from a 3-1 deficit to win the Stanley Cup.
A best-of-seven series is of course a fair and sensible way to decide a tournament, but I have to say I love when it comes down to one game. The series is tied at three, and whoever wins tonight, wins Lord Stanley's Cup.
