Funny, because according to the official icetime sheets for Game 7, the twins didn't share the ice with Thornton-Campbell-Paille until at the 14th minute. Except for a few seconds on what looks like a shift change. And they had a couple of shifts face-to-face after that.
Here's a site that shows it in a handy shift chart graph:
I guess the official scorers should have watched the game more closely, too...
