Greatest Photos In Hockey History
#15 - Bill Mosienko
It is said that everyone gets 15 minutes of fame. Bill Mosienko only had 21 seconds. But with this photo, he was forever immortalized.
Bill Mosienko holds an amazing NHL record that likely will never be matched. On March 23, 1952, Mosienko scored three goals in a 21 second time frame! And legend has it he actually missed what should have been an easy goal just afterwards, thus preventing him from scoring 4 goals in less than one minute!
All three goals were assisted by Gus Bodnar, and they came in the third period helping the Hawks get by Lorne Anderson and the New York Rangers by a final score of 7-6.
