2002, game 3 Dallas vs. Edmonton - 2-0 for Dallas with a 1:01 left, all looks lost, and Belfour makes a giveaway and Edmonton pops one in the empty net. Then Eric Brewer scored with I think 13 tics on the clock. This was in Edmonton. The place went out of it's mind, It was like theyd won the stanley cup. (Dallas won it OT)
Another good one was game 7 last year, I know it was only a 1 goal comeback, but the Canucks rushed it from behind their own net with only 15 seconds remaining, go all the way down and score a goal delivered straight from heaven . unfortunately the Flames shut us up pretty shortly after that .
I've also seen the Carolina and Los Angeles comebacks. Both were not only single game comebacks, but series turning points.
Actually it was Georges Laraque that jammed it home and Poti who scored with 10 seconds to go. I was there. It was a freaking nut house. People were climbing the walls. But... We still lost so
I also watched the miracle in Manchester. I was only a wee lad but I remember staring at the TV in disbelief. Up 5-0 my Dad and I were making jokes as the goals kept coming. That was unreal.
1994 the Canucks win three straight OT games against the heavily favoured Flames to win in 7. Got to hurt to be a Flames fan. Robert Reichel nearly ended it in OT on a 3 on 1!
1975 - Islanders beating Pittsburgh after being form behind 3-0. Then doing nearly the same against Philly tying the series up at 3-3 after being down 3-0. I guess Fred Shero ripped into them pretty good before Game 7. The amazing thing is the Isles almost did that twice in one year, and almost to the eventual Cup champs.
1972 - Game 5 of the Soviet/Can series. Canada up 4-1 in the third period after Henderson's goal and the Soviets score 4 goals in 5 minutes to make it 5-4. Tony Espo slams his stick on the ice after the fifth goal is scored.
1979 - Game 7 Habs/Bruins. Habs wre down 3-1 in the third in that game before Lafleur put on a clinic. Bruins go up 4-3 by Cashman or Middleton then.............well you know the rest!
1996 - This isnt a great comeback from 3 or 4 goals but to me it was a huge turn of events. It still hurts this one. Game 3 World Cup final Can/Usa. Canada ties it up 1-1 late in the second after being robbed time and time agian by Richter. Then with 7 minutes left in the game Adam Foote floats a shot form the line that wouldnt have broken a pane of glass but gets by Richter. Now who here thought the game was over? I did. Then Hull's high stick goal with three minutes left, Amonte's go ahead goal 43 seconds later and then Hatcher's empty net goal followed by Deadmarsh's goal with 25 seconds left. Ouch, that turn of events hurt so bad, the fans in Montreal wanted that game very badly!
92 playoffs, Rangers and Pens in Pittsburgh, Game four. Rangers leading the series two games to one and 4-2 in the third period. If the Pens lose they go back to NY for game five down 3 games to 1.
With about ten minutes left the Pens get called for a 5 minute penalty giving the Rangers a long powerplay. And if I remember correctly, Mario Lemieux was injured early in the series and not in this game.
Amazingly, the Pens killed the 5 minute penalty and scored 2 goals in the last few minutes to tie the game and send it to ot.
This had to be one of Ron Francis' greatest games...He scored the tying goal and then stripped Mark Messier of the puck (as I remember it) and scored the winner in ot. And the Pens went on to win the series and later their second cup.
