Spring 2015 Day 41:
On Monday 25 May in the NHL, the Anaheim Ducks hosted and defeated the Chicago Blackhawks in overtime 5-goals-4 to take a 3-games-2 series lead. Anaheim led by two goals late in the third period, but Chicago tallied twice in the final two minutes of regulation to force the game to overtime. In the NBA, the Houston Rockets hosted and defeated the Golden State Warriors 128-pts-115 to reduce the Golden State series lead to 3-games-1.

As Goes Game Five:
In the last eighteen best-of-7 NHL playoff series in which the Chicago Blackhawks have been tied 2-games-all (as they now are against the Anaheim Ducks), their Game 5 outcome has determined their series outcome. In the last seven such series, Chicago won Games 5-6 to win the series. UPDATE: Chicago has now lost Game 5 of the 2015 NHL Western Conference Finals.

As Goes Game Six:
Leading a best-of-7 NHL playoff series 3-games-2 (as they now do against the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2015 NHL Western Conference Finals), the Anaheim Ducks have a 3-2 series record and a 3-2 Game 6 record: Both Game 6 losses were followed by Game 7 losses.

Comeback Precedent:
In the history of best-of-7 NBA playoff series since 1946, inclusive, teams such as the Golden State Warriors holding a 3-games-1 lead through site order HHVV have a 141-1 (.993) series record; the sole loss was that sustained by the Phoenix Suns - to the Houston Rockets in the 1995 NBA Quarterfinals. So it is that Houston hopes to celebrate the 20th anniversary of that legendary comeback by repeating it under present circumstances. It is of note that NBA teams leading a best-of-7 playoff series 3-games-1 with site order HHVV have a better series record at 141-1 (.993) than MLB/NBA/NHL teams leading a best-of-7 playoff series 3-games-nil as a whole [327-5 (.985)].

First Quarter Launch:
The 45 points by the Houston Rockets in the first quarter of 2015 NBA Western Conference Finals Game 4 tie for the most ever in the first quarter of a best-of-7 format NBA playoff game, tying the 45 points by the Dallas Mavericks against the Los Angeles Lakers in Dallas in Game 4 of their 1986 NBA Quarterfinals series.
