Most Different Defensemen Scoring for One Team in a Game

I wouldn't know how to look up something like this but maybe someone has researched this. Has a team ever had all five or six defensemen score in the same game? Or four different d-men? Or three? I'm sure three has been done but I wonder about 4, 5 or 6?

Here is a game log from ESPN with Rafalski, Lidstrom, and Chelios scoring. http://espn.go.com/nhl/boxscore?gameId=280320027

I'm sure there has been a game where 4 or more have scored, would just take a little more research

you should focus to the wild 70s and 80s. And then season 92/93. I bet 1 cent, that you will find some games....

I'd look at the 1991-92 Capitals - five d-men with 10+ goals.

Yeah, most likely it would come from the 80's/90's - I thought of this thread after seeing an old thread I posted about most goals by defensemen on a team:

I decided to go through some of the gamelogs on hockey-reference to see if there were any instances of 4 or more defencemen scoring in a game. I checked 87-88 and 88-89 and couldn't find any (though there were lots of games where 3 d-men scored). Then I jumped ahead to the 92-93 and found two games with 4 defencemen on the same team scoring:

Nov 27/92, Chicago 8, Edmonton 1 - Chelios had 2, Kucera, Smith and Kravchuk each had 1
Dec 4/92, Washington 8, NYR 4 - Hatcher and Cote had 2, Cavallini and Iafrate had 1

There's probably been other games where 4 did it. 5 would be very interesting, but I'd be surprised if it ever happened.

Carlyle, Cronin, Housley and Olausson all scored in a 11-4 win over Quebec, November 24 1990.

And that was Cronin's only goal of the season!

So basically to top that you have nothing else to start on than
1) The team scored at least five goals (some seasons it was more often than not)
2) If team scored exactly five goals, eliminate all games where player has multiple goals

This is just from the logical side of the question.

March 4, 1972: Blues 2 at Flyers 6

Four consecutive goals by four different defensemen in a span of 5:56 including the first three in 95 seconds. Joe Watson, Jean Potvin, Brent Hughes, Rick Foley were the players.

Both Blues' goals were by Bob Plager, too, to make it six goals by defensemen.

Another great find. With the exception of Foley (11 goals), the rest of the d-men were all low scorers that year so to have them all light it up in one game, let along a 6-minute span, is pretty amazing.

I tried to verify with a second source and thus the reason for delay to the original question; however, that has yet to materialize. There could be a matter of seven defensemen dressed for that game but the status of the four listed correlates with those who were among the d-men.
