Just thought I'd pass it along to the History buffs — The NHL Network is airing the 1980 and 1983 ASGs tonight —
If you didn't get to watch these Hall of Famers in their day, it's a good chance to see a bunch of them in one game.
1980 is the year Wayne and Gordie both played — and they gave Gordie a ten-minute standing ovation in Detroit where the game is played.
Wayne 19 years old and his first NHL ASG
Gordie 53 years old, in his 23rd ASG ! !
also including Tony and Phil Esposito, Guy Lafleur, Reggie Leach, Gil Perreault, Ratelle, Dionne, Gainey . . .
1983 was Gretz's four-goals-in-one-period game.
also including Lafleur, Mess, my namesake and Darryl Sittler, Denis Savard, Trots-&-Bossy, Potvin and Robinson and Bourque, 2 Stasneys . . .
they're going to repeat both games in the overnight.
