Really it has been a fun time of it on This Day this year so the final moment is dedicated to a guy who definitely knows how to chug down the liquid courage. Here you go Dominik, a cider’s up to you!
December 31, 1997
Dominik Hasek stopped 36 shots for his 27th career shutout, in a 3-0 Sabres’ win over the visiting Ottawa Senators. Hasek became the first NHL goaltender since George Hainsworth in 1928-29 to record six shutouts in one month.
