5 goal 5 ways (2.11 mb AVI)-
There are 5 ways to score a goal in hockey. Even
strength, power play, shorthanded, penalty shot and empty
net. Mario Lemieux is the only player ever to
score 'em all in a single game. It happened Dec. 31, 1988 in an 8-6 win over
New Jersey. For good measure, Mario also added 3 assists
that night for an 8-point game.
Lemieux vs Bourque (1.33 mb AVI)- Raymond Bourque was one of the
greatest defensemen to play the game, but even he admits
that he was simply outclasses by Mario Lemieux. Check out
Super Mario skate up Bourques back and, well, beat him
like a rented mule.
Lemieux vs The New York Rangers (3.72 mb AVI)- April 9, 1993, Mario racks up
another 5 goal night against the hated New York Rangers.
What makes his performance so incredible is that it came
just three weeks after returning to the ice following
cancer treatment. Notice Mario still wearing a turtle
neck to cover the radiation burns.
Lemieux recorded 56 points in the 20 games he played upon
returning to the lineup, finishing the season with 69
goals, 91 assist and 160 points (and capturing the Art
Ross Trophy) despite playing in only 60 games!
I've always considered Marios 1992-93 campaign as the
greatest season any NHL'er has ever had.
Lemieux vs The Minnesota North
Stars (1.22 mb AVI)- Okay, the last Lemieux
highlight. This one is Mario in the 1991 Stanley Cup
finals ripping the heart out of the North Stars.
Minnesota pretty much packed it up after this goal when
they realized that they just couldn't stop Le Magnifique.
Mike Legg of the University of
Michigan Woulverines (3.22 mb MPEG)- Mike Legg, playing against
Boston College, scored one of the most creative,
outrageous goals EVER on March 24, 1996. You won't
beleive this until you see it, and even than you probably
won't believe it.
Jim Everett vs Jim Rome (814 kb MPEG)- Okay, so this doesn't have
anything to do with hockey. But let me state right now
that I absolutely HATE Jime Rome. That's why this video
clip is here. Back in 1994, Jim Everett attempted to
strangle Rome on live TV! It is absolutely
great! Jim Rome gets on my nerves, but I'll give him
credit for one thing, he sure can run/crawl backwards in
Clint Malarchuk- I know, it's
only a picture and not a video, but it still pretty much
sums up the incident. During a game on March 22, 1989, Buffalo Sabres
goalie Clint Malarchuk had his jugular vein cut by the
skate of St. Louis Blues winger Steve Tuttle when Tuttle
and Sabres defenseman Uwe Krupp got tangled up and fell
in the crease. Malarchuk
spent only one night in the hospital and returned to play
just 2 weeks after the injury. It was due to this
incident that goalies are required to wear neck
protection. If anyone has a video of this, please email me. PS- Thanks to the Stockdale Celtics for
reminding me of this.
