I remember that game, but even better would be LA kings down 5-0 to Edmonton in playoffs of the series to win in OT(also known as Miracle on Manchester)

I'm starting to feel that way too.

Not to be dramatic, but, sweet jesus, will they ever make the playoffs?

Keepin' my fingers crossed that it's not the usual winter meltdown.

David F'ing Volek.

Or in more recent history, the 2000 second-round series between the Pens and Flyers. Pittsburgh won the first two games *in Philly*, then...well, I don't want to talk about it anymore. Let's just say lots of overtimes were involved.

The 2002-2003 Western Conference finals for the Wild. we had a great playoff run as a 7 or 8 seed (i dont quite remember) and got so far just to score one goal in that whole series against Anaheim.

This game maybe.

http://lpj.free.fr/aval.htm



"Pavel Bure sat out the third period, and so did the Florida Panthers."

Florida leads late in the 2nd period with 0-5 over Colorado.
Colorado ends up winning the game with 7-5.

Great game aswell, some sweet goals and nice hits.
Bure with 3 goals, Forsberg with 3 goals & 3 helpers.

Holy. I don't remember that.

2002. Roy is having a kickass game seven and then pulls the biggest blunder of a great, but blunder filled career. Lose game 6 at home when they could've closed it out, game 7 Federov scores on like the first shot and thats about all you need to know.

1990 Stanley Cup playoffs. It's the first round and my beloved Jets are taking on the Gretzkyless Oilers. However the Moose is leading a skilled squad and should easily take the Jets. After taking a surprising 2-1 series lead on the Oilers, the Jets take game four in double overtime pushing Edmonton to the brink. Then to my dismay, the Oilers take three in a row, 4-3, 4-3 and 4-1 to knock out the Jets. The Oilers went on to win the cup losing only three more games in the remainder of the playoffs. How's that for a collapse?

Side note: Incredibly, only two seasons later In the first round of the 91-92 playoffs, the Jets repeat the fiasco by taking a 3-1 series lead on Vancouver, only to lose three straight and the series by a combined goal total of 21-5.

How's that for a Franchise curse? Since the Jets joined the NHL in 1979, the Jets/Coyotes franchise has won "2" playoff series in over 25 years. The last series win coming in 1986-87. Talk about a commitment to losing.

Nice one. I was just going to post 'Any Jets fans in here?' They're notorious for blowing 3-1 leads.

Caps too..

The Rangers last season could be in there.

Jagr had the Art Ross in the bag and the Rangers had the division. In the last week Joe T pass Jagr and the Devils took the Division. Brutal.

That's what I was going to say, from fighting for first to dropping to 6th to getting swept in the first round. Bad Bad Bad.

The Canucks in '03. It was their year. The year before they had just started to turn it on, and they were on fire going into the playoffs that year. The next year they just weren't at the same level.

Had Cloutier not **** the bed, they had a legitimate chance of at least making the Finals.

Thats probably one of the all time worst playoff series meltdowns ever.

And as a Kings fan... hell yea!

Too bad we havent won a series since then though.

Well I know this was posted before but I'm just going to post the scores

1941-1942 playoffs - Detroit Red Wings vs. Toronto Maple Leafs

SCF

Detroit @ Toronto 3-2
Detroit @ Toronto 4-2
Toronto @ Detroit 2-5
Toronto @ Detroit 4-3
Detroit @ Toronto 3-9
Toronto @ Detroit 3-0
Detroit @ Toronto 1-3


1974-1975 playoffs - New York Islanders vs. Pittsburgh

New York @ Pittsburgh 4-5
New York @ Pittsburgh 1-3
Pittsburgh @ New York 6-4
Pittsburgh @ New York 1-3
New York @ Pittsburgh 4-2
Pittsburgh @ New York 1-4
New York @ Pittsburgh 1-0


The amazing thing about the 74-75 season is that the Islanders almost came back from 3-0 down, twice.

1974-1975 playoffs - New york Islanders vs. Philadelphia Flyers

SCF

New York @ Philadelphia 0-4
New York @ Philadelphia 4-5 (OT)
Philadelphia @ New York 1-0

Philadelphia @ New York 3-4 (OT)
New York @ Philadelphia 5-1
Philadelphia @ New York 1-2
New York @ Philadelphia 1-4

Cannot believe the Islanders almost did it twice in one year when its only been done twice in about 90 years.
