Numbers for Nerds

Ever since Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews first suited up for the Blackhawks in 2007, their team has been involved in a 2-2 series seven times before Monday night. Not only were they undefeated in every ensuing Game 5, but they closed out every one of those series in six games, making for a flawless 14-0 record after being tied up after Game 4.

Key phrase here: were undefeated.
