Loyal reader and frequent contributor Greg Frank points out that the Bruins' heart-stopping victory Monday night over the Maple Leafs was the sixth Game 7 in Boston in the last five postseasons, and each has been decided by one goal.

The Bruins had won two of the previous five, both in their Stanley Cup-winning year (2011).
