There's a link in the OP.

1942 Wings blew 3-0 lead to Leafs, losing in 7
1966 Wings blew 2-0 lead to Habs, losing in 6
1971 Hawks blew 2-0 lead to Habs, losing in 7

It's weird, I didn't know about 1966. Gordie Howe really blew his chance there for a late-career Cup.

You don't say this about Howe almost ever, but in the 1966 final he did blow his chance. This didn't happen the previous 4 times that he reached the final after winning his last Cup in 1955. But for whatever reason in 1966 he did not do well in the final. Overall he had 10 points in 12 games in the playoffs which is a noticeable step down from the other years that he reached the final and lost. I mean, he would produce to the point where you couldn't blame him at all for those losses. However, he had only two points in the 1966 final. One goal and one assist. The one goal was with 1 second left in Game 3 although the game was over at that point. The assist was in the pivotal Game 6 where they lost the series in overtime. Yeah, it is rare, but this is one of those times where you figure Howe could have done more.
