Today in NHL History – February 16

2004 – The Pittsburgh Penguins lost their NHL-record 12th consecutive home game.

 

1992 – Michel Goulet (Chicago Black Hawks) became the 17th player to score 500 career goals.

 

1969 – Alex Delvecchio (Detroit Red Wings) scored his 1,000th NHL point.

    It could happen again next season too!! That’s what’s really scary. I am hoping above all, that some really smart people see through the pettiness and the politics and get a new CBA in place before the new season starts. I would hate for history to repeat itself and have another lockout or what might even be worse, a short season like the NBA is having. Please let us KEEP OUR HOCKEY!!
