    Thought it would be cool to start a thread like this to supplement our collective puck knowledge. I'll start with yesterday (January 31), because, it's a gem...and I don't feel like waiting a year to post it.

    On this day in 1920 . . . Joe Malone of the Quebec Bulldogs scores 7 goals against Toronto en route to a 10-6 Quebec victory. Malone almost tied his record that same season with 6 goals in the final game of the year against Ottawa. His single-game record still stands after more than 80 years.

    On this day in 1977, Toronto's Ian Turnbull set an NHL scoring record for defensemen with five goals (including his first career hat trick) in a 9-1 win over Detroit at Maple Leaf Gardens. Turnbull became the first NHL player to score five goals on just five shots.

    In honor of the trade dead line excitement:

    February 10, 1975 - St. Louis Blues traded Ace Bailey along with Stan Gilbertson to Washington, in exchange for Denis Dupere.

    Prior to the trade, Ace Bailey had registered 41 points (15g, 26a) in 49 games played for the Blues. Stan Gilbertson, who had spent parts of the 1974-75 season with the Denver Spurs (CHL) and California Seals (NHL) had put up 5 points (1g,4a) in 22 games with St. Louis.

    The other side of the trade - Denis Dupere - had 35 points (20g, 15a) in 53 games played with Washington at the time of transaction.

    How'd the deal work out? Washington won this trade in a landslide. Bailey posted 17pts (4g, 13a) in 22 games with the Caps that season and went on to have 3 moderately successful seasons in Washington. Stan Gilbertson benefited from a change in scenery, tallying 18 pts (11g, 7a) in 25 games with the Caps, after scoring just 5 pts in 22 games with the Blues.

    Denis Dupere ended up being a rental for St. Louis. He registered a meager 9pts (3g, 6a) through 22 games with the Blues, after scoring 35 points in 53gp earlier in the season with Washington. Next season, Dupere left for the Kansas City Scouts, scoring just 14 points (6g,8a) in 43 games.
