33 years

In NHL history, there have been 155 playoff series that started with one team winning the first three games. The Red Wings and Stars are already in rare territory by going to six games. Here's how the other 155 series have ended ...

100 times in four games
43 times in five games
7 times in six games
3 times in seven games with 3-0 team winning
2 times in seven games with 0-3 team winning

The two times that the team down 3-0 rallied to win the series were in 1942 (Toronto over Detroit in the Stanley Cup final) and 1975 (Islanders over Pittsburgh in the second round). Thirty-three years between those two events and 33 years since the last time it happened.

That's great, Bruce. Thanks. Thanks a lot.

Oh, by the way, my therapist would like to talk to you.

The puck can't do math! The puck can't do math!

My sanity is now shredded beyond repair.
