The LA Kings beat the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals during the Stanley Cup Playoffs on June 1, 2014. The Kings have won Game 7 of all three series to get to the Stanley Cup Finals.

I'm wondering if a team ever went on to win the championship after winning 4 Game 7s? If so, can you provide a list of the team and the year of accomplishment?

This has never happened. The closest any time has come in Hockey since the NHL moved to four 7 game series has been the Bruins in 2011 and the Kings in 2014. They each won three game 7s. The Bruins in the first, third and fourth rounds. No team has even played four game 7s that I could find since the league went to four 7 game series in the 80s. The Kings can make history this year.

I also went ahead and checked basketball (the other major US sport that plays four 7 game series for their playoffs), and no team has played four game 7s in that league either.

    I was gonna say - it's been all over the internet/news that the Kings are the first team ever to win 3 game 7's on the road and only the second team to ever win 3 game 7's. I heard all about this and I'm not even that big of a hockey fan. – jamauss Jun 2 '14 at 17:52

    @jamauss yeah, and neither league has played 4 sets of 7 games for long enough for any kind of real history to have been built up (NBA started in early 2ks, NHL in the 80s) – wax eagle Jun 2 '14 at 18:02
