Random Hockey Facts

I think this could be fun. Drop in here occasionally and give us a little known fact or one you find interesting.

 

To start it out: Outside of his 70 goal season, Bernie Nicholls never scored more than 46 goals in a single season.

Here's a little known fact Sammy... I mean Scott.

 

The first NHL games were played on December 19, 1917. The Montreal Wanderers defeated the Toronto Arenas, 10-9, and the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Ottawa Senators, 7-4.

I have some regarding the Tampa Bay Lightning:

 

Since their inception in 1992, the Bolts have played home hockey games at THREE different sites.

 

--First was a small state fairground arena, the Florida Expo Hall, which only seated 11,000 people-- Inaugural season

 

--Second, was what is now the baseball Rays home stadium, it was the Thunderdome back then, and the Bolts went from 11,000 seat house to a 28,000 seat baseball dome (and filled it close to capacity on a few occasions!)-- '93 to '96

 

 

--Finally, their third and current home, Amalie Arena, a 19,000+ seat arena, which interestingly enough, has undergone a BUNCH of name changes since the Bolts started playing in it.

 

The Ice Palace- '96 to '02 (What I believe to be the BEST of the four names used)

The St. Pete Times Forum- '02 to '12

Tampa Bay Times Forum -  '12-'14

Amalie Arena- '14 to the present

 

Bolts fans eagerly await another three or four seasons, when the name will undoubtedly change once again....probably to the Florida Aquarium Arena (the Florida Aquarium in Tampa sits just a few blocks away ;) )

 

Just kidding...errr, I hope...

 

 

Anyways, trivia questions generated:

 

1-How many home arenas have the Tampa Bay Lightning had from '92-'15 (Answer: 3)

 

2- How many names used? (Answer: 6)

 

3- Bonus points: Name them.

(Answers, 1-FL Expo Hall, 2- The Thunderdome, 3-The Ice Palace, 4-St. Pete Times Forum, 5- TB Times Forum, 6- Amalie Arena)

The 1937-38 Chicago Blackhawks are probably the worst team to ever win the Stanley Cup. They had a pathetic 14-25-9 record. Their 97 goals were the fewest scored by any team that season, and their 139 goals allowed were the second-worst total for any team.

during the 1998-1999 season, Satan had 66 points.......

the year after that, he had 67 points (just one less point....obviously to avoid suspicion)

then in 2005-06, he had another 66 points....

What NHL goaltender holds the record for most points in a single game?

 

X-Flyer goaltender coach Jeff Reese!!!

 

Reese holds records for most assists and most points in one game by a goalie (3 for Calgary vs. San Jose on February 10, 1993).

Before Maurice Richard's 50 goal season in 1944-45, only four NHL players had ever reached the 40 goal mark. Joe Malone scored 44 goals in the league's first season, 1917-18, and three players did it in the 1929-30 season: Cooney Weiland (43), Dit Clapper (41), and Howie Morenz (40).

 

The first 60-goal season in NHL season was also the first 70-goal season: Phil Esposito's 76-goal 1970-71 season.

Another interesting hockey fact.

 

From 2005-2015, there have been 26  100 point seasons.

 

From just 1987 to 1989, there were 33 players that hit the 100 point mark.

The 1974-75 Philadelphia Flyers are the last team with an all-Canadian roster to win the Stanley Cup.

 

And with the amount of diversity in the NHL now, they will probably be the LAST all Canadian roster to do that.......or even exist as a team for that matter.

I feel like digging this old thread up.

 

Only five players in NHL history have scored 150 or more points in a single season: Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Steve Yzerman, Phil Esposito, and Bernie Nicholls.

 

Only eight players in NHL history have scored 70 or more goals in a single season: Wayne Gretzky, Brett Hull, Mario Lemieux, Phil Esposito, Alexander Mogilny, Teemu Selanne, Jari Kurri, and Bernie Nicholls.

 

There's a fairly surprising name in common on those lists, wouldn't you say?

In one of the most unique hockey records, Pittsburgh’s Mario Lemieux scored five different ways in one game. He scored a goal at even strength, got one on the power play, another shorthanded, another on a penalty shot, and a final one into an empty net with one second left in the game. He is the only NHL player to ever score “five goals five ways” in one game.

Over the years, the Stanley Cup has changed. It’s much taller now and parts of the cup have had to be replaced, including the original bowl. By the late 1960s, it was becoming fragile and people wanted to keep it safe. So this special bowl rests in the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto for all fans to enjoy. A new bowl that looks just like the original was made. This is what sits on top of the trophy given to players today. But that’s not all. The Stanley Cup travels around for different events. So the Hockey Hall of Fame decided to make a replica. That way the cup is always on display there, even when the real Stanley Cup is away.
