Spring 2018 Day 39:
Results from Saturday 19 May.
NHL
Tampa Bay hosted, defeated Washington, 3-goals-2.
NBA
Cleveland hosted, defeated Boston, 116-pts-86.

Streak Ended:
Tied 2-games-all in a best-of-7 NHL playoff series, the Washington Capitals had an active five-Game 5 winning streak halted by the Lightning in Tampa Bay in the 2018 NHL Eastern Conference Finals.

Cleveland Precedent:
In best-of-7 NBA playoff series history, teams losing Games 1-2 on the road and winning Game 3 at home by 30+ points (such as the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2018 NBA Eastern Conference Finals) have a 2-3 series record, with the two wins characterized by a Game 4 loss and then wins in Games 5-7, and with the Cleveland Cavaliers having notched the last such series victory (over the Golden State Warriors in the 2016 NBA Finals).

Uncharted Territory:
For the first time, the Vegas Golden Knights lead a best-of-7 NHL playoff series 3-games-1, and the Winnipeg Jets(II) trail a best-of-7 NHL playoff series 3-games-1.

Single Precedent:
In best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series, teams which post a win/site order of LWWW @ VVHH (such as the Vegas Golden Knights in the 2018 NHL Western Conference Finals) have an active seven-series winning streak. The last team in that situation (and the only NHL team ever) to fail to convert the series victory: the NHL Detroit Red Wings, against the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2013 NHL Quarterfinals; Chicago would ride the momentum of that improbable comeback to the 2013 NHL championship.

Series Streakiness:
Leading a best-of-7 NBA playoff series 2-games-1, the Boston Celtics have an active ten-series winning streak. Trailing 3-games-2 in a best-of-7 NHL playoff series, the Washington Capitals have an active four-series losing streak.

Game Streakiness:
Tied 1-game-all in a best-of-7 NBA playoff series, the Golden State Warriors have an active five-Game 3 losing streak.

Game Comeback of the Spring 2018 Season:
The in-game comeback of the Spring 2018 NHL/NBA playoff season thus far was achieved by the Pittsburgh Penguins against the Capitals in Washington on 26 April. Pittsburgh trailed the Capitals in Washington by two goals as late as 2:58 into the 3rd period, but won. In the history of best-of-7 NHL playoff series from 1939 through 2017, inclusive, road teams trailing by two goals as late as 2:58 into the third period had a game record of 25-456 (.052).

Series Comeback of the Spring 2018 Season:
The in-series comeback of the Spring 2018 NHL/NBA playoff season thus far was achieved by the Washington Capitals against the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 2018 NHL Preliminary round. Washington is the first Spring 2018 series winner to trail within a series by any games, let alone 2-games-nil.
