NHL Game 7s (UPDATED):
Irrespective of win/site order, home teams in NHL Game 7s have a 102-72 (.586) record overall, and a 40-29 (.580) record in best-of-7 NHL Preliminary-round series. The Boston Bruins now have a 14-8 Game 7 record in Boston. The Toronto Maple Leafs now have a 5-11 Game 7 record on the road (with an active six-Game 7 losing streak). The twelve Game 7 losses by the Boston Bruins (irrespective of site), the eight Game 7 losses by the Bruins at home, the 16 road Game 7 appearances by the Toronto Maple Leafs, and the eleven road Game 7 losses by the Maple Leafs top their respective categories in best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff Game 7 history. The San Jose Sharks now have a home ice Game 7 record of 4-1. The Vegas Golden Knights now have a 0-1 Game 7 record. The Carolina Hurricanes bring an MLB/NBA/NHL-best 4-0 Game 7 record into their Game 7 against the defending NHL champion Washington Capitals, whose eight home Game 7 losses tie the Bruins in Boston for the most home Game 7 losses in best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff Game 7 history.

Noteworthy Game 7 Comeback:
The Sharks in San Jose trailed the visiting Vegas Golden Knights 3-goals-nil as late as 9:19 into the third period of their Game 7, but rallied for the victory. In the history of best-of-7 NHL playoff games from 1939 through 2018, inclusive, home teams down three goals as late as 9:19 into the third period had a game record of only 6-191 (.030).

Home-Court Victory:
The Game 4 victory by the Jazz in Utah against the Houston Rockets not only staved off a sweep by Houston, but also ended a nine-game home-team losing streak in the 2019 NBA playoffs begun Saturday. The length of that streak is noteworthy, given how the home-court advantage in the NBA playoffs is considerably greater than the home-ice advantage in the NHL playoffs and the home-field advantage in the MLB playoffs.

Broom Lowered Hard:
The sum of the victory margins in the four Milwaukee-Detroit NBA series games, 95 points, sets a best-of-7 NBA Preliminary-round series record for a series lasting four games for the largest such sum ever. The 487 total points by the Milwaukee Bucks against the Detroit Pistons is the most ever by one team in a best-of-7 NBA Preliminary-round series lasting four games.

Game Comeback of the Spring 2019 Season:
The in-game comeback of the Spring 2019 playoff season thus far was achieved by the Los Angeles Clippers, against the host Golden State Warriors on 15 April. The Clippers trailed Golden State by 23 points at halftime of their 2019 NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals Game 2, but rallied for the victory. In the history of best-of-7 NBA playoff games since 1947, inclusive, teams irrespective of site down 23 points at halftime had a game record of only 0-16 (.000). The 23-point halftime deficit surmounted by the Clippers is the second-largest halftime deficit surmounted in best-of-7 NBA playoff game history: In 2017, the Cleveland Cavaliers trailed the Pacers in Indiana by 25 halftime points in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinals series, but won.

Series Comeback of the Spring 2019 Season:
The in-series comeback of the Spring 2019 playoff season thus far was achieved by the NHL San Jose Sharks, against the Vegas Golden Knights in the 2019 NHL best-of-7 Preliminary round. San Jose trailed Vegas 3-games-1 after four games of their series, but rallied to win the series 4-games-3.
