NHL Stanley Cup Finals: Teams that Have Come Back From Down 2-0
Never mind coming back from being down 3-0 in any postseason series. It’s practically as impossible to come back and win the title after being down 2-0, at least where the Stanley Cup Finals are concerned.
Believe it or not, it has happened only five times in NHL history. Now that was fewer than expected, for sure.
It’s arguably even worse news for Detroit Red Wings fans. Their team has been the victim three times.
The 1941-42* Toronto Maple Leafs were down 3-0. They are the only North American sports team to overcome that deficit to win a title. They lost the first two at home, too, as did the 1965-66 Montreal Canadiens.Follow @VinGetz
