ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — One year after the Ducks and Blackhawks both exited the playoffs with a loss in a seventh game, they’re facing off in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals tonight. The teams have alternated victories in a tense, well-played series.

The Ducks have just one regulation loss in the entire postseason, but it was in Game 6, a 5-2 defeat that might have turned the series’ momentum in the Blackhawks’ favor.

Anaheim’s last two postseasons ended with a Game 7 loss at home, and they blew a 3-2 series lead both times.

Despite their two Stanley Cup titles in the previous five seasons, the Blackhawks can’t exactly stand on a stellar Game 7 record, either. The current Chicago core has lost in two of its three trips to a Game 7, beating only Detroit in a second-round series in 2013.
