The first 0 and 3 comeback ever


WORLD'S FIRST 0 AND 3 COMEBACK
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's first comeback from 0 and 3 ?

Out of the major professional sports in North America the NHL, NBA and MLB have best of seven series. The odds of a team coming back from an 0 and 3 deficit, assuming the odds of winning are 50%, are 1/16 or 6.25%.

In reality the odds are far less, under 1% to be more specific, in fact this great comeback has only occurred 4 times in the history of North American professional sports and never in the NBA.

The first come back from an 0 and 3 deficit was accomplished by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1942 Stanley Cup finals when they defeated the Detroit Red Wings in 7 games to capture the cup.

April 4: Detroit 3 Toronto 2
April 7: Detroit 4 Toronto 2
April 9: Toronto 2 Detroit 5
April 12: Toronto 4 Detroit 3
April 14: Detroit 3 Toronto 9
April 16: Toronto 3 Detroit 0
April 18: Detroit 1 Toronto 3

The second 0 - 3 comeback also occurred on the ice when the New York Islanders won 4 straight against the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 1975 Quarterfinals.

The third 0 - 3 comeback was accomplished in Major League Baseball in 2004 when the  Boston Red Sox shocked the New York Yankees coming back from 3 games down in the League Championship Series.

The fourth was achieved by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2010 Conference Semi-Finals. The Flyers not only came back against the Boston Bruins after being down 3 games to 0, they also came back in game 7 after being down 3 goals to 0 in the first period. The Flyers would score 4 unanswered goals and win the series 4-3 as well as the game 4-3.
