11. December 1985 The Edmonton Oilers and Chicago Blackhawks play one of the wildest games in modern NHL history, combining for 21 goals on 90 shots in Edmonton's 12-9 victory at Chicago Stadium. The 21 goals are the most by two teams in one game since the adoption of the red line in 1943. The Oilers and Blackhawks also set an NHL record by combining for 12 goals in the second period. Edmonton leads 6-0 early in the second before Denis Savard gets the Blackhawks on the scoreboard with a power-play goal. Chicago gets as close as 7-5 and 8-6 before goals by Marty McSorley and Glenn Anderson late in the period give Edmonton a 10-6 lead, and Jari Kurri scores two third-period goals to keep the Oilers comfortably in front. Kurri finishes with a hat trick. Wayne Gretzky doesn't score a goal but matches the NHL single-game record with seven assists. Troy Murray and Ken Yaremchuk score two goals apiece for Chicago.
