[QUOTE="Marilink, post: 1629366, member: 23215"]Is that the only time in any of the Big 4 Leagues that a team has overcome a 3-0 deficit? I know it's never happened in the NBA, and I'm fairly certain it hasn't happened in the MLB.[/QUOTE]
NHL
2010, Philadelphia was down 0-3, wins 4 over Boston.
1975, NY Islanders down 0-3, wins 4 over Pittsburgh.
1942, Toronto down 0-3, wins 4 over Detroit.

NBA
There have been 3 times a team has been down 0-3 and forced game 7, but none of them won the series.

MLB
2004, Boston down 0-3, wins 4 over Yankees.

NFL
2017, New England down 3-28, scores 28 over Atlanta.
1993, Buffalo down 3-35, scores 38 over Houston (Oilers).

NCAAF
2006, Michigan State down 3-38, scores 38 over Northwestern.

Mmmmm Dominik Hasek.

Remember when Buffalo traded him to Detroit and he helped us win the Stanley Cup in his first year with the Red Wings while the Sabres completely missed the Playoffs? Aaaaahhh... that was niiiiiice.

EDIT: Oh, and then he helped us win another in 2008 before finally retiring (for real).

EDIT 2: *evil giggles*

Lacrosse is just an afterthought here. I mean, there's only 9 teams in the league. Its not even the only "professional" lacrosse league.

FFS I'm out. Never bet on St. Louis.

The Oilers are up 5-0 about to hopefully tie up the series.

My only hope now is that the Penguins don't win the Cup. I couldn't care less about anyone else at this point.

That's kind of where I'm at too, though I have very very cautious optimism that the Caps can make the Pens blow the 3-1 lead. It's age of memes, baby

Here's hoping Otttttawa and Capitols win.
I don't have a preference between the Mighty Ducks and Houston.

I feel like I'd rather have the Oilers win, since it's been so long that they've done anything.

The class shown by Vancouver in this video ALMOST (not quite) makes up for the classlessness they showed when they lost the Cup to Boston.

I don't want the Oilers to win. I can't bring myself to root for a team that was gifted like, 4 lottery wins in 6 years.

Speaking of the lottery, did you guys see how busted it was this year? The Avs aren't even picking in the top 3.

If I were an Avs, fan I would be losing my mind. As a Sabres fan, I'm still pretty ticked. Going from 6th to 8th sucks too. The lottery has not been kind to us in recent years. I feel like the anti-Oilers. Hence my intense dislike for them.

Sucks to be a Vegas fan too (do they even have any yet?). I always thought expansion teams were slotted into the top draft spot, but they got put at 3 and then dropped down to 6. Welcome to the NHL, have fun with what may not be a face for your team who you may not even see until 3 years from now. Good luck selling tickets.

^I think Vegas will have a decent amount of fans. It's Nevada's first professional sports team, and their social media market seems to be doing a good job of it so far.

I don't even know how the lottery works.

On another note
**** THE PENS. GOD DAMMIT. I'M SO SICK OF THEM.

Last night wasn't great. Both teams I wanted to win did not win.
