As the Buffalo Sabres and Philadelphia Flyers face off in Game 7 on Tuesday night, history suggests that this is uncharted territory for these two teams. In the eight prior playoff matchups between these teams, none of the series went to a Game 7. 

The Buffalo Sabres in their history are 1-6 in Game 7's with the only win coming on April 29, 1997 against the Ottawa Senators. That game was at HSBC Arena and the Sabres are 0-4 when it comes to playing in a Game 7 on the road. The last loss for the Sabres in Game 7 came on June 1, 2006 against the Carolina Hurricanes in the Eastern Conference Finals. 

The Philadelphia Flyers are 7-6 in Game 7 and they have won the last two Game 7's the team has been in, May 14, 2010 against the Boston Bruins and April 22, 2008 against the Washington Capitals. At home, the Flyers are 6-3 in Game 7 with the last home win coming against the Toronto Maple Leafs April 22, 2003. 

None of this actually means anything when it gets down to actually playing the game though.
