This Date In Stanley Cup History
April 26, 1975 • Goaltender Glenn Resch and the New York Islanders blanked the Pittsburgh Penguins 1-0 to win Game Seven and capture their 1975 Quarter-final series. The Islanders became just the second team in NHL history to win a best-of-seven series after losing the first three games, joining the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs. The Islanders nearly repeated the feat in the Semifinal against Philadelphia. The Islanders again lost the first three games of the series only to bounce back and win the next three. Their bid for an unprecedented second straight 0-3 comeback was stopped as they lost Game Seven, 4-1.
