B. Wayne Presley is the correct selection for most short-handed goals in a playoff season with three.
Let’s be honest, this is not one most people get off the top of their heads. Presley was your average athlete playing for the Chicago Blackhawks in the late 80s, on teams which were high powered offensively with Denis Savard and Steve Larmer leading the way year after year.
Presley had a great 1989 playoff run though, scoring seven times with five assists, but the stat that shouts right at you is the three short-handed goals he scored during that run. The Blackhawks only played 12 times that postseason before bowing out without the coveted Stanley Cup.

I did throw in Dave Bolland on this question because, if you ask me, the most important short-handed playoff goal in recent memory was Bolland’s in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final of 2010 which helped lead the way to a win that night and, in the end, the end of the 49-year drought.
