NHL: Teams That Have Come Back from 3-2 in the Stanley Cup Finals

The 2010-11 Boston Bruins Were The Last Team To Come Back From Down Three Games To Two In The Stanley Cup Playoffs Finals

The 2010-11 Boston Bruins Were The Last Team To Come Back From Being Down Three Games To Two In The Stanley Cup Playoffs Finals

Well, someone’s going to be in this position after tomorrow night. Either the Chicago Blackhawks or the Tampa Bay Lightning will be down three games to two in the Stanley Cup Finals.

The loser will have to take the series to seven games and win the final two in order to hoist the Cup.

In the history of the NHL, since the first official Stanley Cup Playoffs in 1918, the Finals have gone to seven games just 16 times. That’s 16 out of 95*  Finals (16.8 percent).

Exactly half of those series (eight) saw the team down 3-2 win it all. They are listed below, including the **1942 Toronto Maple Leafs who came back from 3-0.

The upshot? According to history, no matter who wins tomorrow night, it’s a coin flip (50-50) to call the winner.

STANLEY CUP FINAL WINNER LOSER
1. 1942** Toronto Maple Leafs Detroit Red Wings
2. 1950 Detroit Red Wings New York Rangers
3. 1964 Toronto Maple Leafs Detroit Red Wings
4. 1971 Montreal Canadiens Chicago Black Hawks
5. 2001 Colorado Avalanche New Jersey Devils
6. 2004 Tampa Bay Lightning Calgary Flames
7. 2009 Pittsburgh Penguins Detroit Red Wings
8. 2011 Boston Bruins Vancouver Canucks

* 1919 was cancelled due to the global flu epidemic and 2005 was never played thanks to a lockout.
