Two of the last six Stanley Cup champions faced an 0-2 deficit in a playoff series before going on to win the Cup.

Both times the deficit came in the first round.

In 2002, Detroit lost games 1 and 2 to Vancouver by scores of 4-3 (in OT) and 5-2, before storming back to win in six games.

In 2006, Carolina fell behind in games 1 and 2 to Montreal by scores of 6-1 and 6-5 (in OT), before roaring back to win in, yes, six games.
