2002-2003 was my final year of high school and it was my first year on the varsity hockey team. (I had tried out the year before and ended up being the last player cut.)

Anyway, we only lost one game in that 2002-2003 season. We ended up making it to the finals and meeting the only team that beat us all year.

In the championship game, we were down 3-2 after two periods. In the locker room, the assistant coach gave us the requisite inspirational speech, and we ended up going back out there and getting scored on within the first minute of the third period, putting us down 4-2. We then exploded for five goals and ended up winning by a final score of 7-4.

Our head coach had passed away at the beginning of the season, having coached the team for more than two decades. The win was our school's first championship in 80 years (since 1923). We didn't come back from a huge defecit, but it was surely the greatest comeback I've ever been a part of.
