Numbers Don’t Lie: Game 6 Notes

Teams with a chance to win the Stanley Cup on home ice are 40-20 (.667) since the 7-game format began in 1939. Since 2000 they’re just 6-8, according to Rich Chere of Star Ledger.

Devils are 4-0 when facing elimination in the 2012 playoffs. They defeated Florida in Games 6 & 7 and Kings in Games 4 & 5, writes Chere.

The Kings have yet to play a game when facing elimination this postseason.
