The St. Louis Blues and Dallas Stars are meeting for the 14th time in a Stanley Cup playoff series and for the fifth time, they are going seven games. But these two teams don’t step there when it comes to going the extra mile.
Three of those four prior Game 7 battles have gone to overtime, one of them to double overtime.
