Game 7.

Once and for all. Win or go home.

For the third straight year, the NHL will feature three Game 7s to cap off an exciting first round of Stanley Cup playoff action.

It's a stage set for drama, where teams' fortunes can be made or broken by a single play.

As the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers, Minnesota Wild and Colorado Avalanche and San Jose Sharks and Los Angeles Kings prepare to do battle on Wednesday night, here's a look at the 10 Game 7s we've seen over the past three years and what those games have meant for their teams.

Rankings were made in terms of overall impact of the result—what the winning team was able to do with its opportunity and how dramatically the losing team improved their fortunes. 

It's nail-biting time.
