This Day In Hockey History: Nov 14th

1936 - Toronto's "King" Clancy scored on a penalty shot as the Maple Leafs beat Chicago 6-2. It was the final goal of his NHL playing career.

1985 - Philadelphia honored the memory of goaltender Pelle Lindbergh, fatally injured in an automobile accident four days earlier, in a pre-game ceremony before a 5-3 win over the Oilers.

1991 - Toronto's Dave Reid set an NHL record with a shorthanded goal in his fourth straight game, a 5-3 win over the visiting Washington Capitals.

1998 - Bobby and Brett Hull became the first father-son combination to each score 1,000 NHL points. Brett had 3 points to become 53rd player in NHL history to get 1,000 points.

2001 - Patrick Roy became the first goaltender in NHL history to win 200 games with two teams (Montreal and Colorado) when the Avalanche won 1-0 against the visiting Minnesota Wild.

Happy Birthday to Taylor Hall, Murray Oliver, Don Lever, Aaron Broten, Rod Seiling, Bugsy Watson, Tim Jackman and Ed Kryzanowski.

Dave Reid's SHG streak was November 1990, not 1991.
