The Stanley Cup Playoffs are proving once again that no lead is safe.

That is one short of the playoff record of 15 that was set in 2014, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Here's a look back at the 14 multigoal comeback wins:

Bold trades paying off for Predators in playoffs

by Arpon Basu @ArponBasu / LNH.com Senior Managing Editor

NASHVILLE -- David Poile had to think about it for a moment, because he's waited for this moment for so long.

Poile just finished watching the Nashville Predators, the team he has been general manager for since their inception in the NHL in 1998-99, reach the Western Conference Final for the first time.

Poile has selected every player the Predators have ever drafted, traded for every player, signed every free agent, done everything for Nashville, which has now gone farther in the Stanley Cup Playoffs than it ever has.

His voice was useless Sunday in the minutes after the Predators won Game 6 of the Western Conference Second Round, 3-1 against the St. Louis Blues. That victory propelled the Predators to the Western Conference Final for the first time since they started playing in 1998.
