It Is Different Now

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,
It used to be that simply scoring first in a playoff game meant that team would emerge the winner almost all of the time. Well, the '06 playoffs have turned into the Spring of the Comeback. In 41 playoff games going into last night, the team that didn't score first won the game on 15 occasions, a success rate of 37 per cent. Well, teams are no longer locks to win after scoring first. Moreover, teams have fallen behind after 20 minutes and come back to win on eight occasions. Trailing after two periods, teams have fought back to triumph six times.
