In previous NHL Game 7s, the latest that a team trailed in a game it won was 1:15 left in the third period (when Boston led by one goal in Montreal in their 1979 series; Montreal scored on home ice with 1:14 left to tie the game, and won the game 9:33 into overtime), and the latest that a _road_ team (such as Carolina tonight) trailed in a game it won was 2:44 left in the third period (when Detroit led by one goal at home against Toronto in their 1993 series; Toronto scored in Detroit with 2:43 left to tie the game, and won the game 2:35 into overtime). Thus, tonight's game marks the latest into a Game 7 that an ultimately victorious road team had ever trailed ... and came within seven seconds of marking the latest into a Game 7 that an ultimately victorious team (home or road) had ever trailed.
