Mario Lemieux - 2000Super Marios comeback is arguably the most improbable return in sports history. Carlos Hyde Jersey .After playing 12 seasons with the Pittsburgh Penguins, winning two Stanley Cups in the process, Lemieux decided to retire after the 1996-1997 season at the ripe age of 32. Years of injuries alongside a scary diagnosis of Hodgkins lymphoma back in 1993 wore Lemieuxs body down to a point where he had to hang them up.After Mario left, the Penguins found themselves in deep financial trouble and declared bankruptcy in Nov. 1998. Lemieux put together an ownership group to buy the team in Sept. 1999, keeping them in Pittsburgh.Then to everyones surprise, he returned to the ice as a member of the Penguins two days after Christmas in the year 2000. The return was especially improbable because he announced his "attempt" to comeback just two weeks prior.So Mario had already won a pair of Cups in Pittsburgh, defeated cancer, saved the team from relocation and then did this in his first game back in three years against the hated Toronto Maple Leafs.Lemieux scored 35 goals and 41 assists for 76 points in just 43 games the rest of that season, a truly remarkable feat. Mario played four more injury plagued seasons winning Olympic gold in 2002 in Salt Lake City before officially retiring in 2006.He may have never hoisted Lord Stanleys mug in his second NHL go-around, but the way Lemieux saved the team financially and persevered through his own personal health problems to get back to the top, makes his comeback the most memorable in sports history.Guy Lafleur - 1989Guy Lafleur is one of the greatest Montreal Canadiens to ever play the game.In his 14 seasons with the Habs he won five Stanley Cups and is the all-time leading scorer in Canadiens history, recording 1, 246 points (518 goals and 728 assists).However, during the 1984-1985 season Lafleurs production drastically decreased and he wasnt seeing eye-to-eye with head coach Jacques Lemaire. On Nov. 26, 1984, Lafleur announced his retirement to the shock and dismay of many.Three and a half seasons later, Guys itch to play the game returned and joined the New York Rangers on a one-year deal. In February 1989, Lafleur made his return to the Montreal Forum.He never came close to dominating in New York or later with the Quebec Nordiques like he did in Montreal, but his return to the Forum was closure for the two sides that left on uneasy terms.Michael Jordan 1995Michael Jordans return is undoubtedly the king of sports comebacks in terms of success and domination.Jordan and the Chicago Bulls won back-to-back-to-back NBA championships from 1991-1993 as the undisputed best player in the world. Then, shockingly, Jordan announced his retirement on Oct. 6, 1993 citing personal reasons. He followed that bomb with his attempt at playing professional baseball with the Chicago White Sox.And we all know how that turned out.The Bulls still made the playoffs in the 1993-1994 season, but werent the same team without Jordan. The following year, Chicago struggled even further until Jordan decided to trade his cleats for sneakers and returned to the NBA.M.J. didnt miss a beat. This video is of his first game back on March 19, 1995 against the Indiana Pacers.The Bulls went on to win a second set of three consecutive championships from 1995-1998 with Jordan taking the Finals MVP honours each time. He also won the NBAs Most Valuable Player in 1996 and 1998.Jordans comeback was the ultimate, simply due to the fact that he was the best when he left and was still the best when he returned.Theres really no need to mention Jordans second comeback with the Washington Wizards in 2001. Lets try to stay as positive as possible here.Lance Armstrong 2009This comeback was not as warm and happy as the others.After winning the Tour de France seven years in a row from 1999 to 2005, Armstrong decided to retire after the 2005 season when the first drug accusations began to surface.In 2009, Armstrong got back on the bike and finished third in the Tour de France. He retired once again in 2011 with more allegations of performance-enhancing drug use.Then it really began to unravel for Armstrong.In the following year, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency charged Armstrong with performance-enhancing drug use and proceeded to strip him of his seven Tour de France titles. In 2013, after years of denial, Armstrong confessed to Oprah in a nationally televised interview that he in fact cheated.The return of Armstrong was negative for so many reasons, but mostly because it ruined the image of a person that was so beloved and inspired so many during his heyday. The cancer surviving elite athlete was long gone. Instead, he was considered a lying cheater.However, its fair to say that all of this would have still happened if he stayed retired after the 2005 season.Honourable Mention:Brett Favre (2008) Technically Favre never truly retired. In 2007, Favre said he was done with football, but then proceeded to join the New York Jets the following year. He did something similar with the Minnesota Vikings in 2009. Sorry Brett, but being wishy-washy isnt the same thing as coming out of retirement.Roger Clemens (2007) This return was cool because it happened on the bigger-than-life stage of New York City. Clemens had come out of short stints of retirement before to join the Houston Astros, but nothing compared to making his return to Yankee Stadium.Muhammad Ali (1970) Ali never retired, but rather was exiled from boxing because he refused to fight in the Vietnam War. When he finally got back in the ring in Oct. 1970, Ali was as dominate as ever. Tom Rathman Jersey . Asdrubal Cabrera had four hits and three RBIs, Michael Brantley also homered and the Indians beat the injury-riddled Minnesota Twins 9-4 Thursday for their first three-game winning streak this season. Aaron Lynch Jersey .The other side of the Bruins special teams unit delivered in the end.Gregory Campbell netted the game-winner with less than 10 minutes remaining and the Bruins fended off a late four-minute San Jose power play to earn a wild 5-3 win over the Sharks. http://www.thesf49ersshoponline.com/Youth-Ya-Tittle-49ers-Jersey/ . According to the Red Wings Twitter feed, Zetterberg plans to practice with the team on Thursday and is aiming for a second round comeback.SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Roberto Luongo prevented the San Jose Sharks from moving into sole possession of first place. Luongo made 28 of his 52 saves in a frenzied third period to help the Florida Panthers snap San Joses six-game winning streak with a 3-2 victory on Tuesday night. "We gave them the two points there," Sharks defenceman Jason Demers said. "Thats unacceptable." Marty Havlat and Brent Burns scored, but the Sharks were lackadaisical on defence in the second period and came up empty on four power plays in the third period to lose the game. That cost San Jose a chance to move past Anaheim for first place in the Pacific Division. The teams are tied with 97 points heading into Thursdays showdown at the Shark Tank, but the Ducks have a game in hand. The Sharks came in with the best home winning percentage in the NHL, but four of their nine losses at home have come against the bottom four teams in the inferior Eastern Conference -- Carolina, the Islanders, Florida and Buffalo. "Weve talked about this lesson a lot of times this year already with teams that are maybe not in the playoffs and we keep shooting ourselves in the foot," coach Todd McLellan said. "Until we fix that, well probably end up with the same results." Brandon Pirri scored one goal and set up Quinton Howden for another in a 17-second span of the second period and Scottie Upshall also scored for the Panthers, who had lost seven of their previous eight road games. But Luongo was the biggest reason for the win, especially in the third period when Florida was outshot 29-2 had to kill off four power plays, including 51 seconds of a two-man advantage. San Jose had the extra skater for all but 27 seconds in a span of 7:36 during the middle of the period but couldnt get anything by Luongo. "I havent seen a performance like that in a while," Howden said. "That was impressive. It was tough taking those penalties but you have confidence with the guy back there. He was our best penalty killer tonight." Burns finally broke through on San Joses 26th shot of the period when he knocked a puck past Luongo aftter a faceoff win by Joe Thornton with 3:03 remaining. Patrick Willis Jersey. . But Luongo robbed Joe Pavelski in the final minute to preserve the win. San Jose has failed to score on 34 of its past 35 power plays at home since Feb. 3, with the only goal coming early in the second period when Havlat beat Luongo with a slap shot from the high slot. "Its not good enough, simple as that," Sharks forward Logan Couture said. "Its on us, the players who go out there and play the big power play minutes, myself included. It needs to be better, it needs to help win us games." The Panthers took over the game after Havlats goal and led 3-1 heading into the third. Pirri changed the tenor of the game on one shift. It started when he raced past Jason Demers and put a shot on goal that Niemi initially saved. But the puck popped in the air and landed behind Niemi, hit his skate and trickled into the net. "Its an opportunity here and, when you get those opportunities, you have to make them count," Pirri said. "We created some speed down the wings and maybe they didnt cover the gap as well as they would have liked. I just shot it." Just seconds later, Pirri got another shot on goal that trickled through Niemi and was sitting in the crease where Howden knocked it in for his third goal in four games this season. The Sharks put on heavy pressure in the closing minutes of the period, but Luongo was up to the task and the Panthers added an insurance goal with 14.8 seconds to play when Pavelski lost the puck near the boards and Joey Crabb slid a pass to Upshall, who beat Niemi with a one-timer. "In the second period, I dont think we used our head," Demers said. "We were working hard, but werent working smart." NOTES: F Jonathan Huberdeau (upper body) did not make the trip for the Panthers. ... Sam Tageson, a teenage hockey player with a life-threatening heart condition, practiced with the Sharks, skated through the shark head before the game and was introduced to a loud ovation before the game as part of a day arranged through the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Sharks Foundation.
