The Philadelphia Flyers completed an epic comeback victory Thursday over the Pittsburgh Penguins on the shoulders of captain Claude Giroux. This came after being down three goals just four minutes into the game.

The Flyers won for the first time in a game when they trailed by three or more goals since October 2016, when they defeated the Buffalo Sabres 4-3 in a shootout. Another crazy chapter in the Flyers-Penguins rivalry is in the books, and announcers can once again spin cliches about the most dangerous leads in hockey.

Some of the greatest games in Flyers history, especially in recent memory, have included remarkable comebacks from down three goals. See where Thursday’s thriller ranks in the Top 5.
