    what do you think guys? the most uncommon thing ever happened at a hockey game? Like that guy who jumped on the net at the yankees stadium last week (my example is a baseball one but it was the only one i found to explain myself :sarcasm: ) or the power failure at the old boston garden in playoffs after many overtime

    The streaker at the Flames game.
    When Iginla got a piece of board advertising stuck on his head. (see Don Cherry #14, I believe)
    When Craig MacTavish pulled off Harvey the Hound's tongue.
    When Calgary made it to the Stanley Cup Finals.

    Wow. Somehow all of this stuff happened in or had to do with Calgary.

    That too.

    I think that that is in the first Don Cherry video.

    That guy in Calgary that fell on the ice wearing only socks and kind of passed out lying there. What a moment.

    That happens relatively often. Not as much anymore and it was more of a minor, junior and college thing.

    Sometimes in Germany this happens a couple of times in a game. Always a fun to watch.

    Actually, it was Mike Vernon that Gino beat, in a game between Vancouver and Calgary in October of 1991.

    I'll go with Rob Ray throttling that fan in a game in 1992.

    Some of my favorites

    Hands of stone Darren McCarty pulling a perfect deke on the d-man and the goalie then scoring in the '97 Cup final.

    Older than God(okay, 41 years old) Igor Larionov pulling similar manuever in 30T to win the game 3 in the SCF. Since the game was so long, it actually went into the next day, Igor initially broke the record for oldest player to score a goal in a Cup final on his first goal, which I believe was in the second period, then broke it again on his second goal, about 4 hours later...

    Salming once had a slapshot lodge in his skate blade between the toe and heel posts.

    The drunken fool in Philly who took a swing at Tie Domi.

    The lights go out in the Boston Garden in game three of the Stanley Cup Finals in 88.

    And just as an aside the two strangest trades ever:

    In 1947 Springfield Indians GM Eddie Shore trades forward Jake Milford for two used goal nets.

    In 1983 the Seattle Thunderbirds of the WHL traded Tom Martin to the Victoria Cougars for a used bus! The bus needed an overhaul, but Martin scored 75 points in 60 games for the Cougars and was eventually drafted by the Winnipeg Jets.

    In '83, they were the Breakers. The TBirds didn't come to be until the '85-'86 season.

    Dec 23, 1979 - "Mad Mike" Milbury going into the stands in Madison Square Gardens after a game and grabbing a guy's shoe and beating him with it. Take that Ron Artest.
