His record against Philly as a Hab was 1-8-5 or something like that. I am sure someone can find it for sure. Either way, it is horrendous and it makes you wonder what the heck Philly would do to him. As an Avalanche he narrowed that record down a bit but it is strange because the Habs were always good when he was there and Philly was just awful for about half the time he was a Hab.
Based on hockey-reference's game log that starts in 87-88 and this web page for his first 2 seasons. Roy went 3-11-7 with 2 no decisions (he was replaced in one game and came in to replace Hayward in the other; both turned into Montreal losses) against the Flyers in his career with the Habs. That said, his record was 1-8-1 against the Flyers from the 89-90 season til he was traded to Colorado.

Not from the above sources. Roy went 12-1-1 against the Jets as a Hab and never faced them as an Av until they moved to Phoenix, against whom he went 12-7-4 in the regular season (interestingly, in 96-97 and 97-98, he went 6-0-1 against them, and then in 98-99 and 99-00, he went 1-5-1) and 4-1 in the 99-00 playoffs.

His first career game (and win) was a 20 minute relief appearance against the Jets on Feb 23 1985, too.

If the current standings remain as they are, this will happen again this year.

Just got this from a November 1972 Hockey News: Buffalo was off to a good start thanks to the play of Gilbert Perreault, who was getting personal training from former professional wrestler Fred Atkins!

Here is also a picture of Penguin holding Fred Atkins dismembered hand.

Yeah yeah...

For the sake of this thread. October 30th 2008 was the first time when two NHL teams played against each other with both team captained by brothers. Saku Koivu's Montreal Canadiens and Mikko Koivu's Minnesota Wild.

In addition to what has already been listed:


Scott Stevens/Mike Stevens(23 gp)
Mark Messier/Paul Messier (9 gp)
Steve Shutt/Byron Shutt (65 gp)
Bud Poile/Don Poile(66 gp)
Murray Costello/Les Costello (15 gp)
Aurele Joliat/Rene Joliat (1 gp)
Bill Quackenbush/Max Quackenbush (61 gp)
Art Coulter/Thomas Coulter(2 gp)
Patrick Roy/Stephane Roy(12 gp)
Doug and Max Bentley/Reg Bently (3 gp)*
UNCONFIRMED--Doug Gilmour/Dave Gilmour(1 WHA gp)
Bill and Bun Cook/Bud Cook (50 gp)
Frank and George Boucher/Bobby Boucher (11 gp)

--Cousins (This wasn't an exhaustive search, but I noted them when they came up)
Mark Messier/Mitch Messier (20 gp)
Mark Messier/Joby Messier (25 gp)
Denis Savard/Jean Savard (43 gp)

Jack Darragh played FEWER games than his non-HHOF brother Harold (121/308)


*Reg Bentley's wikipedia entry specifically mentions Doug and Max convincing Chicago to sign Reg
Can probably add Chris Pronger (1167gp, 698 pts) and Sean Pronger (260 gp, 59 pts.) Both played for the Ducks, but never at the same time.

The Vancouver Canucks have won more playoff series after trailing 3-1 than after being tied 2-2 after 4 games.

(They have come back 3 out of 9 attempts down 3-1, and have won 2 of 10 series when tied 2-2).

Trivia - Name the only two wingers in history with multiple 70+ assist seasons. Hint: I provided the answer in a thread not too long ago.

This probably goes in the not-so-interesting category but it's something you don't see often. Defenseman Leo Boivin spent his career with Toronto, Boston and Detroit, and when the first expansion came along in 67/68, he wound up with Pittsburgh. The following season he was on Minnesota and was traded back to Pittsburgh during the season. The following season, his last, he was back with Minnesota.

Well, one is obviously Jagr.

I'd venture the second is H. Sedin; leading the league in assists 3 years in a row and all.

I could easily look this up, but that would be cheating, so I'll guess it's Jagr and Lafleur

I was about to say Jagr and Recchi, but how could I forget Lafleur?

and yes Recchi has two 70 + assist season.

On the top of that, Jagr and Lafleur both plays for Rangers. Lafleur and Recchi both for Habs, and Jagr and Recchi both for Pens, Flyers & Bruins.

Otherwise...

Alex Smart score an hat trick on his firts NHL game, then score 2 goal in the remainder of his career.

Carl Brewer did retire and make a came back 3 times before retired for good in 1980 at 41.

Larry "the China Clipper" Kwong was the first player of Asian descent to play in the NHL. He played one minute of a game for the Rangers in 1947-48.

From 1989-90 to 1995-96 the Victoria / Prince George Cougars of the WHL had a record of 99-384-21 for a winning % of 0.196. Unbelievable that a team could be that bad for so long.

My God that 1990 season is atrocious.


That 12 points is basically half of the NHL worst season (21 by 1975 Caps).

Maybe it was already said, but Joe Juneau still holds the record for most assists in a season by a left winger with 70. My goodness, it is only 70, you'd think someone would have beaten that by now. Michel Goulet had 65 in 1984. I'm not sure, but that may be the next best by a left winger. I mean..........Juneau, really?

I remember Randy Gregg was studying medicine while he was playing for the Oilers in the 1980's. Does anyone know if he became a doctor and is he practicing?
