Don’t Touch That Dial!

If you think you’ve seen an unusually high number of late-game comebacks already in this NHL season, this morning’s Tennessean validates your hunch:

According to Elias Sports Bureau, five road teams have already rallied to victory after trailing by three goals, one more time than that happened during the entire 2007-08 season.

Nine teams this season have a winning percentage of .500 or better when allowing the first goal, which is nine more than finished the 2007-08 season in such a position.

A nice piece by John Glennon that also attempts to identify potential causes for this wild & wacky action.
