    Just wanted to point this out for anyone who's interested. @1968NHLtweets is a twitter account (with which I have no connection) that reports on NHL news from exactly 50 years ago, as if it were happening today.

    Example from this morning:



    Very cool way to have a real-time experience of hockey history, especially for that below-the-surface dive into the details of how all those stats and award votes came to be.

    1968? Wish it was from 100 years ago.

    But beggars can't be choosers. Thanks for that.

    There was a 1967 account too. I'm not sure if that account turned into the 1968 account or if it was an account that stopped posting after awhile.

    I think the one account is based on “50 years ago”, so it would have flipped from 67 to 68.

    13,000 seats on LI in 1928 is insane! I mean when they built Nassau in 1972 it sat 14,600

    By comparison the Forum sat 9,300 in 1928 and could squeeze 12,000+ with SRO
