The 2013 NHL Playoffs have reached the conference semifinals stage, with the Boston Bruins staging a historic comeback at home in Game 7 against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Trailing 4-1 early in the third period, the Bruins rallied for three goals, including two within 30 second with less than two minutes remaining to force overtime, only to see Patrice Bergeron send Boston into the next round six minutes into the extra frame. That will set up an Original Six matchup against the New York Rangers, who turned in quite an impressive Game 7 performance themselves, shutting out the Washington Capitals on the road, 5-0, to complete a comeback of their own.
Boston was extremely close to turning in another postseason collapse, as they once possessed a three games to one lead in the series. Toronto was able to even the series at three games apiece, and came dangerously close to pulling off the upset, only to squander a three goal third period lead. Keep in mind, while the Bruins won the Stanley Cup in 2011, they have been on the receiving end of some of the more epic playoff collapses in recent history.
