Today in NHL History – March 17


 

2007 – Mike Modano (Dallas Stars) scored his 502nd and 503rd career goals making him the all-time U.S. leader in goal-scoring.

 

1955 – In Montreal, there was a seven-hour riot that caused more than $1 million in damage. Canadien fans were upset because NHL President Clarence Campbell had suspended Rocket Richard for attacking an official during a fight in a game on March 13.

 

1940 – For the first time in NHL history, one line (Boston’s Milt Schmidt, Woody Dumart and Bobby Bauer) finished 1-2-3 in NHL scoring.
