okay, they didn't have to give him all 3 stars. Frickin' Canadian media is so corny.

Congrats to him! He's been one of my favorite non-Devils for quite some time, what an accomplishment!

By the way he becomes the first person to accomplish the milestone since Mario Lemieux had 8 points against the Devils in 1988. That was the game he scored 5 goals in 5 different ways.

The funny thing about that game is that the Devils were in it right until the end...they were trailing 7-6 and were pressuring big time with their goalie pulled, but then Mario got his empty netter to ice it.

I was at that game in Pitt, on new years eve with a bunch of friends. I still swear the empty net goal was after the buzzer, but conveniently there's never any video of that last goal.

By the way, last night's 8 point game has better memories for Devil fans, see the link:

That was unforgettable.

Mark Johnson got 4 goals and still not good enough for the 1st star Patrik's 8 pts.

That night I sat next to Chris Russo, before he was Maddog. He had a sports talk show on WMCA & must've gotten free tickets. Not surprisingly he tried to talk basketball with me, of which I know or care very little.

I thought he was nuts, this was a 10 goal playoff game with tons of fights and hockey didn't faze him then either.

Finally, proof that goal was late. I've looked in the past, but I think after this Gagner game they put it on nhl.com

After clicking the link & the commercial, click on the side link 5 goals 5 diff. ways.

Then go to the end & freeze the video clock at 1:13 & see the green light on behind the net & start the 'wave off' signal.

F'n NHL. Kissed Mario's a__ . The NHL had to see that video & still allowed it to stand.

Holy Sh!t, Gagner has 2G & 1A in the first period tonight vs. wings, so that's 11 straight team goals he has a point on. Just amazing!
