Don't count out the teams that have fallen behind in their series.

It doesn't look great, but it's not the end of the world.

Just because a team loses the first game—or two—of its NHL playoff series, it doesn't mean the lights are out.

Last year, two out of eight teams who lost Game 1 of their quarterfinals recovered to win their series. Plenty of others have come before them.

The first round is the land of six and seven-gamers, long overtimes and crazy upsets. Momentum in a series can shift on a dime.

The Detroit Red Wings have already come back to tie their series with the Anaheim Ducks. For the other seven teams who are down, but not necessarily out, here's a look at one good reason they'll each be able to get back in the game.

Which teams do you think have the best chance of coming back and moving on? Talk about it in the comments below.
