This Day In Hockey History (1/23)

If it is Monday, then it is time for another moment from “This Day”.  Today we felt going into more recent history was perfect and sure enough we found a pretty good milestone.  When you think of class in the NHL, there were few players like the player we honor today.  If you really think about it, he was cut out for management and pretty much anything he wanted to do after hockey.  So our moment comes from seven years ago today and we hope you enjoy it.

This Day In Hockey History (12/3)

It is one of those days here at “This Day” where it seemed like moments would be far and few between.  Why?  Well it just felt like it honestly.  Then out of the blue it just hit us all in a rush.  Indeed there was quite the little moment today.  It truly was a first as the San Jose Sharks were in their first year of existence playing in yes what was called the “Cow Palace”.  However, this moment happened 20 years ago today and here is the video to go along with this little gem lost in history.

 

 

December 03, 1991


Brian Mullen scored at :22 of overtime to give the Sharks their first ever OT victory, 3-2 over the Kings, at the Cow Palace. The win stretched the Sharks’ unbeaten streak to 3-0-1.
