This weekend marks the first time the Bruins and Celtics have played a Game 7 on back-to-back days.

First, the Bruins face the Carolina Hurricanes on the road Saturday at 4:30 p.m. Next, the Celtics play the Milwaukee Bucks at home Sunday at 3:30 p.m.

The Bruins won 5-2 on Thursday to force a Game 7, and the Celtics prevailed, 108-95, on Friday to do the same.

According to Boston Sports Info, the Bruins are 15-13 all-time in Game 7, but only 1-4 on the road. The Celtics are 24-9 overall and 20-5 at home.

The last time the two teams won a Game 7 in the same year was in 2018, three days apart in late April. Before that, it hadn’t happened since 1988.

The Hurricanes are -135 favorites and the Celtics are 5-point favorites.
