Ducks' comeback sets new record
The Anaheim Ducks' rally in Game 6 against the Dallas Stars set a new record for multigoal comebacks in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Anaheim Ducks were less than three minutes away Sunday night from being forced to play a Game 7 in their Western Conference First Round series against the Dallas Stars.

Instead, they helped make history.

Nick Bonino and Devante Smith-Pelly scored 1:14 apart late in the third period to erase a 4-2 deficit before Bonino scored again 2:47 into overtime to lead the Ducks to an improbable 5-4 victory in Game 6 at American Airlines Center. Anaheim won the series 4-2 and will face either the San Jose Sharks or Los Angeles Kings in the second round.

The Ducks recorded the 10th multi-goal comeback of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs (that's 24.4 percent of the 41 playoff games played). That is a record for the most such victories in the first round of the postseason; there were only eight such victories in the entire 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Overall, there have been 27 comeback wins this postseason.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
