OT: Last 70 goal scorer?

When was the last time someone scored 70+ goals in the NHL, and who was it?

With 43 goals already, and 30 games remaining, Ovechkin could do it this year.

27 in 30 games. Possible but unlikely.

On the NHL Network they were doing a piece on top scorers showing when Gretzky became the first to score 50 goals in 39 games. The amazing thing was that he was at 41 goals at 37 games. 9 goals in two games.

I don't think Ovechkin will get 70 this year, and since Mogilny got 76 it'll take a bit of time to actually beat the record. I think some time in the future though Kovalchuk and Ovechkin will break that record.

Doesn't Gretzky hold the record with 92 goals in a year and a couple of seasons with 87 goals

yea, 92 goals is definitely the record for goals

and Ovie needs 27 goals in 30 games. I think that's definitely possible. I say he hits 70!

Guy is unreal. If only he was in ranger blue

Mogliny and Teemu his 76 the same year. The last game of the year for both teams their teammates could have and in most cases had an empty net and continued to look for Teemu or Almo.

92 is going to be very hard to beat ever. 50 in 39 ... that'll be even tougher. Mario or Hull did it in under 45 but under 40 is just nuts.....

But when you think about 70 goals ... Ovechkin certainly has a chance ... if he get a few hattricks and multi-goal games along the way, he could end up with 15 in 10 or so games meaning he just needs a dozen in the other 20...... his division certainly isn't a strong one either.....

AO only needs 13 more goals to break Bure's goal totals in his first 3 seasons in the league.. that's pretty amazing considering he had back to back 60 goals in his sophomore & junior seasons.

He scored 13 goals alone in January.

He has 2 months left.

Figure he can duplicate that month twice.

He would only need an extra goal in the first week of March.

And that would give him 70.
