SPORTS QUIZ….The Red Sox have come from 0-3 down to tie the ALCS at three games apiece. If they win tonight, they will be first team in baseball history to win a playoff series after being down 0-3.
Quiz question: has any team ever done this in another sport? Who and when?
Answer: in 1942, the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Detroit Red Wings in the Stanley Cup after losing the first three games.
But how about the NBA? Does anyone know?
UPDATE: From comments, it appears the New York Islanders beat the Pittsburgh Penguins in a hockey playoff series in 1975 after losing the first three games. So it’s happened twice in the NHL.
