Best of 3 Series, with the 3rd "game" being a single period played after the 2nd game.
We lost the 2nd game in the series in a shootout and had to play a final, deciding and winner take all period right after the second game.
They scored 2 minutes into the period and it remained that way until the final minute where we tied it up at one. Expecting another shootout to decided the winner, we made the cautious effort to protect the lead and get it in to the shootout by playing full out defense for the last minute. However, with 15 seconds left and the puck at our opponent's zone, we somehow managed the get several scoring chances and finally managed to poke in a loose puck with 5 seconds left.
It's not a monumental comeback, but the circumstances in that game (heartbreaking shootout loss in the second game, fatigue and playing till 1:30 am in the morning) made it one of the greatest comebacks I've participated in.
