Game 7 records for players

Before Game 7 of the Kings/Sharks series, much was made of the fact that Williams, Richards, and Gaborik were undefeated in Game 7s throughout their careers. I'm wondering whether the following information is available anywhere:

a) who has won the most Game 7s in their career?
b) who has won the most Game 7s without defeat?
c) who has played in the most Game 7s in their career?

Among active players, I think Chara (11) probably has played in the most Game 7s. Gaborik, Richards, and Williams are all 5-0 now.

It might surprise a lot of people when they hear this, but there are certain players that did not have a record that stands out in Game 7s. Patrick Roy was about 7-6 if I remember correctly. Mario was 3-3.

Two players I remember having outstanding Game 7 records were Scott Stevens and Ed Belfour. I am pretty sure Belfour only lost one Game 7 in his life and that was 2003. He was 6-1 or so I believe.

Messier by my count has a 7-2 record in Game 7s.

I believe Roy is 6-7 actually.

Ray Bourque went 7-0 with Boston, but went 2-1 with Colorado to end up 9-1.

The impressive thing for Roy is that he got his team to a game 7 so many times. On it's own his Game 7 win percentage may not seem all that impressive, but think about all the other times when guys were out in 6 or less and never even made it to game 7.

Lundqvist is undefeated in game 7. That might be because in the series the Rangers lose they suck so much they can't make it to game 7

Another interesting category was points. Found this on Google Archives:

http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/ar.../t-856827.html

Quote:
Trevor Linden

Nine career game 7s:

6G 6A 12 points. Points in 6 0f 9 game 7s. Included in that, scored the only 2 Canucks goals in game 7 of the 94 SC final, as well as the game winner in his last game 7 in 2007 vs Dallas.
Quote:
Ray Bourque lost his first game 7 in 1982. He never lost another as a Bruin.

'83
'88
'90
'91
'92
'94

6-1 in game 7's as a B....and he was a huge part of all of them.

He would also go 2-1 as an Av. So 8-2 over his career.

He's at least lost one when Fedorov scored the winner as the 3rd period was ticking down. 2009 I think.

Stevens record isn't that sparkling in game 7's. He was on the Caps team that lost game 7 to the Isles in 1987. On the Caps team that lost game 7 to the Devils in 1988. On the Devils team that lost game 7 to the Rangers in 1994. On the Devils team that lost game 7 to the Penguins in 1999. On the Devils team that lost game 7 to the Avs in 2001.

granted he's won a bunch too

One thing you have to remember about older players is that sometimes game 3's and game 5's that they played in the 70's and 80's were essentially game 7's because that was the deciding game of those series.

Gretzky - game 7 log

EDM

'84 Smythe Division Final vs. Cgy - W - 1+2
'86 Smythe Division Final vs. Cgy - L - 0+1
'87 Stanley Cup Final vs. Phi - W - 0+1

LA

'89 Smythe Division Semi-Final vs. Edm - W - 2+1
'93 Campbell Conference Final at Tor - W - 3+1

StL

'96 Western Conference Semi-Final at Det - L - 0+0 "Gretzky had it, lost it..."

So in all: 4-2 with 6 goals, 6 assists.

(and if we're including it because it was a "dual-elimination" game, so to speak, game 5 of the 1982 Smythe Division Semi-Final vs. LA - L - 1+0)

I just checked and yeah I must have read the record wrong. But only one game 7 loss in his career is impressive

Roy is 6-7, Brodeur is 6-4. I have not heard of any player with more wins than the two of them, though I wouldn't be surprised if someone like Chelios or Messier was up there (Mess won 2 game 7s in 1994 with the Rangers, one in 1992 against NJ...add that to his EDM years, and he should have more than six?).

Lundqvist is 4-1 (with 5 GA ), for those who are wondering.

Bourque probably takes the cake then.

Marleau usually scores points in Game 7s (though not this year).

Is there a way to see how many points individual players scored in game sevens? Would be a cool scoring race, no doubt.

How does that even make sense when the missed infraction was in the previous game?

Gilmour barely over Linden.

I think Justin Williams has actually caught up since 2007, not sure if he's in the top few yet.

doing some math for Justin Williams

April 22, 2003, PHI vs. TOR, 6-1 victory - 1 g, 2 a (1+2=3)
June 1, 2006, CAR vs. BUF, 4-2 victory - 1g, 2a (2+4=6)
June 19, 2006, CAR vs. EDM, 3-1 victory - 1g, 0a (3+4=7)
May 28, 2013, LA vs. SJ, 2-1 victory, 2g, 0a (5+4=9)
April 30, 2014, LA vs. SJ, 5-1 victory, 0g, 1a (5+5=10)

So Williams has 5 game 7s, 2.0 PPG in game 7s, ten points, tying him with Jagr for 3rd all-time.

Chara is headed for his 11th Game 7 on Wednesday. (He would have had 12, but a knee injury kept him out of the Leafs-Sens Game 7 in 2002)

Sorry, I didn't mean to correct you as such -- I thought you were quoting a broadcaster's actual words.
