24 47 67 | Pittsburgh Penguins and Sidney Crosby defeat Ottawa Senators in double overtime, May 25, 2017


Well, the face of the NBA advanced to the NBA Finals in the Eastern Conference Finals today, and the face of the NHL advanced to the Stanley Cup from the Eastern Conference Finals today as well.  Today is May 25, 2017.

5/25/2017 = 5+25+20+17 = 67
5/25/17 = 5+25+17 = 47 (NHL = 47) (Ottawa Senators = 47)

The Penguins have become 4-7 in Game 7 history.



National Hockey League = 87
Sidney Crosby, born 8/7, and wears #87



The announcer just said this will be the first NHL Playoffs with no Canadian coaches...

So, no Canadian team has won the NHL Stanley Cup since '93, and that streak will last until 2018.  That means 24-years a non Canadian team will have won.  Canada = 24; The Sun = 24

Perhaps that is it.  Instead of a Canadian team winning 24-years later, there is to be 24-years of no Canadian teams winning, and then the streak will be broken, which means next season.

UPDATE:  It has been brought to my attention that the Stanley Cup was cancelled in 2004-05 season, meaning that next season will be 24 seasons.... something I was not aware of until just now.  This is a reminder you have to have all the pieces on the table to see the picture.
