Game 2 in Cup Final usually bodes well for victors

The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH (AP) Game 2s of the Stanley Cup Final have traditionally been pivotal, and lately three periods haven't been enough.

The team that has won the second game of the seven-game series has ended up hoisting the Cup nearly 74 percent of the time since 1939, when the Final expanded to the current format, and in nine of the past 13 Game 2s.

Last year, both trends were not followed. Tampa Bay beat Chicago 4-3 in the only Game 2 since 2011 that wasn't extended to overtime. And the Blackhawks ended up winning the Cup for the third time in six years.
