But this past season, Lundqvist was celebrated for tying Eddie with 267, and passing him with 268. After a little research, it seems like Elias Sports Bureau got it wrong and gave Eddie an extra win (if you sum up him wins totals from hockey-db or hockey-reference, you'll see again that it adds to 266). I tried to let Elias know of their mistake, to no avail. Anyone know how to get in touch with them?
Back on topic with Mike...one of the greatest Rangers of all time, for what he did on and off the ice. He represented this team and the city tremendously well, and was a great role model for kids like me who grew up idolizing him.
