Broadcast-wise, the game will be televised regionally on NESN and nationally on ESPN in the U.S. In Canada, the game will be on Sportsnet East, Sportsnet West, Sportsnet Pacific, SN360 and TVA Sports.
For the Bruins, this will be their NHL-record 29th Game 7 contest (and their 13th since the start of the 2008 Stanley Cup Playoffs), with the Bruins coming in having won 15 of their 28 previous Game 7 contests. Overall, the Bruins have just one road Game 7 victory in their franchise history, which of course came back in the 2011 Stanley Cup Final in Vancouver. The Hurricanes, meanwhile, are 5-0 in Game 7 games all time.
