Only 2 teams in NHL history have come back to win a best-of-7 series after being down 0-3. It happened in 1942, when the Maple Leafs beat the Red Wings in the finals, and again in 1975, when the New York Islanders came back against the Penguins.
1942 and 1975 are 33 years apart, which just so happens to be the number of years between 1975 and 2008…
Maybe the Rangers have hockey karma on their side?
Sure doesn’t feel like it.
