The night Gretzky and Graves made history

[1]It was 17 years ago today. NHL.com reminded me of the anniversary of The Great One scoring his 802nd goal to pass Gordie Howe as the all-time leader, on March 23, 1994.

On that night, in Edmonton, Adam Graves was making his own history, scoring goals No. 50 and 51 to tie and pass Vic Hadfield’s Rangers single-season record.

Of course, Graves’ record was somewhat overshadowed across the continent, even in Edmonton.

Here’s NHL.com’s story about the Gretzky anniversary [2].
