The Boston Red Sox baseball team came back from 3-0 to defeat the New York Yankees in the AL Championship series in 2004, 4 games to 3.

The 1974-75 New York Islanders came back from a 3-0 deficit against the Pittsburgh Penguins to win the series, and almost did it again against the Philadelphia Flyers, tying that series 3-3, but losing game 7.

The 1941-42 Toronto Maple Leafs actually came back from down 3-0 in the Stanley Cup Finals against Detroit, coming back to win the Stanley Cup.

And of course the 2009-10 Flyers against the Boston Bruins.

No team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit in a playoff series. The 1951 New York Knickerbockers, the 1994 Denver Nuggets, and the 2003 Portland Trailblazers came back from a 3-0 deficit to tie the series at 3-3, but neither won their respective Game 7.Eight teams, however, have rallied back from a 3-1 deficit. Those include:1968 Boston Celtics1970 LA Lakers1979 Washington Bullets1981 Boston Celtics1995 Houston Rockets1997 Miami Heat2003 Detroit Pistons2006 Phoenix SunsAnother playoff tidbitMany more teams have come back from a 2-0 deficit, but that is much more common.

Most of the teams who have successfully rallied from a 3-1 hole (six of the eight) enjoyed homecourt advantage.

There are 7 teams who won an NBA playoff series trailing from 3-1. The Boston Celtics made it twice 1981 and 1968. The last team who came back from a 3-1 deficit is the Phoenix Suns after defeating the Los Angeles Lakers.

There are actually only 7 teams in the NBA who rallied from 3-1 to win a playoff series. They are the Boston Celtics (1968), Los Angeles Lakers (1970), Washington Bullets (1979), Boston Celtics (1981), Houston Rockets (1995), Miami Heat (1997), Detroit Pistons (2003) and the Phoenix Suns (2006). So Mathematically only 23.33% of all NBA teams won an NBA playoff trailing from 3-1.

I have never found this out yet, but I do know the Red Sox have in 2004 and three other teams have.

The series "Smallville" aired its final episode back in 2011. It most likely will not come back with an 11th Season.

The 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs were down 3-0 to the Detroit Red Wings and came back to win 4-3. The New York Islanders were down 3-0 to the Pittsburgh Penguins and came back to win 4-3.
