This Day In Hockey History (1/24)

Its a Tuesday Edition of This Day and today we found a moment with a sublime name.  It is weird how some of these just find a way into the inbox and yet they do.  When we saw this name, no one could really even believe it.  Yet there it was for all to see.  So today’s moment really does come from 35 years ago and involves a gem from the Vancouver Canucks.  Granted, this one is nothing glamorous but everyone gets the idea.  First, we have the video and then our golden oldie like we always do it here on The Program.

 

 

January 24, 1976


Chris Oddleifson became the first Vancouver Canucks’ player to score two shorthanded goals in a game, when he scored twice in the second period of a 5-5 tie against Toronto.

This Day In Hockey History (12/4)

Its a light and lazy Sunday here on This Day. However, we have a moment nonetheless.  This one comes from the Los Angeles Kings and Marcel Dionne.  Sure we have seen 50 in 50 a few times in our history but Los Angeles had not.  In late 1978, they saw something on a lesser scale that was still very impressive.  Here is the video first and then today’s moment from 33 years ago today.

 

 

December 04, 1978


Kings’ center Marcel Dionne scored his 20th goal of the season, in the Kings’ 23rd game of the season (a team record for fastest 20 goals). It came in the Kings’ 10-2 win over the Capitals at Forum.
