Teemu Selanne scored his sixth goal of the season in the Anaheim Ducks 3-2 win over the Minnesota Wild Friday night. It was a historical goal.
Selanne, at the youthful age of 42, scored his 669th career goal. He surpasses Luc Robitaille into 11th all-time in goals in NHL history. Next on his list is Jaromir Jagr, who still plays with the Dallas Stars, at 671 goals.
Mario Lemieux at 690 is ninth all-time on the list.
Goal by #NHLDucks RW Teemu Selanne the 669th of his magnificent career, moving the Finnish Flash past Luc Robitaille into 11th all-time.
This dominant win is a heck of a way for the Kings to begin an imposing seven-game road trip, which continues against the New York Islanders on Thursday. The Bruins probably want to burn the tape on this one themselves, as they’re about to head on a six-game road trip.
Per @EliasSports: @LAKings had 9 different skaters score in a game for 5th time in franchise history. Last: Jan. 21, 1987 vs. PIT (10-5 W).
Some hockey players resist the urge to wear a visor, at least if they’re given that choice.
Perhaps a few will say “Hey, Nathan Beaulieu will just punch it off anyway.”
Maybe not, but Beaulieu provided a rather unique moment in his fight with Cedric Paquette during the Montreal Canadiens – Tampa Bay Lightning game. You can watch that bout in the video above, and see a cut on the Lightning pest’s face from that blow.
