This Day In Hockey History (1/27)

It is a quick TGIF edition of “This Day” as the All Star Break continues.  If we thought teams that got into shootouts a ton these day was odd, well we have one for you today.  This has to be one of the more surprising ones that we have ever seen in the inbox.  The moment happened 30 years ago today and still can be best described as “WTF?”.  That echoes our sentiments exactly.  At any rate, we present the video first and then that gem like we always do it.
