    Some great Gretzky hightlights from the 1989 Kings and also the Oilers. Bernie Nicholls recounting Gretzky's advice on going into the corners is some pretty good stuff...

    Here's a memorable goal with Gretzky and Duchesne assisting on a goal scored off of Nicholls' back:


    And here's an 18-minute reel of highlights from a Kings/Nordiques game from 1989 in which the Kings score 11 goals. Gretzky had 7 points in this game:

    Wow, to see Gretzy dragging Randy Muller across the ice at the end of the game because Muller was holding onto Gretzky's jersey (and that's really the only way they could try and stop him) was something to see. Otherwise Gretzky would have had 8 points. Crazy. Thanks for posting that video.

    Some more Gretzky heroics, with yet another clutch performance in Game 7 against his former team.
