It's pretty rare to get three Game 7's in one playoff round, let alone on the exact same day. But that's the case Wednesday night in the NHL, when three decisive games will be played in the First Round of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The oddsmakers in Las Vegas are getting in on the fun, handicapping each of the three games: Flyers vs. Rangers, Wild vs. Avalanche and Sharks vs. Kings. The teams on home ice are all slightly favored. Here are the lines for each game, courtesy of Bovada:
