Hockey Question

I don't watch hockey much at all but I've noticed 2 teams have come back from 0-3 deficits to force a game 7. My question is why does this happen so often in hockey as opposed to other sports? It seems like every year somebody comes back from a 0-3 deficit.

This actually almost NEVER happens in hockey. What you're seeing is something rather historical. It's happened less than 10 times in the history of the game. The effing Sharks and Canucks are just choke artists and constantly torture their fans by never making it easy on themselves.

Really, I swear it seems like every year!!
The Flyers did it last year, were down 0-3 & won the series, that was the 2nd time ever that a team down 0-3 came back and won.
its in the nature of the sport, the teams are so closely matched and dont really roll over the lower seeds. It is not uncommon for lower seed teams even 8 seeds to beat 1 seeds in the playoffs. In basketball the teams the get up 3 games to 0 are usually much better.....just my 2 cents
So, to answer this, it's really not any more common than in any other sports. Aside from baseball -- I don't believe any team in MLB HISTORY has come back down 0-3.

Other than that.

I guess I heard wrong -- I thought I heard no team ever had, but.. Well I stand corrected then. Any other times, ads?
the world series with the angels agains the giants sure as well felt like it was them overcoming a 3-0 defecit

That was it -- the NBA. I misremembered it being the MLB.

To clarify I didn't say come back & actually win the series but to come back & force a game 7.
