Toronto Sun Headline Writer Understands The Nuances Of Best-Of-Seven Playoff Series

Wow. Leave it to a Canadian newspaper to break down their national sport so succinctly. Until now, I had no chance in understanding the complexities of how a winner is determined in an NHL playoff series. Apparently, if a team loses four games in a best-of-seven series, their season is in fact over.

Crazy stuff. The next thing you know the Toronto Sun will have a headline informing us that the “Flyers need to score more goals in Game 6 if they want to win the game.”
