This Day In Hockey History: Feb 10th
1942 - In their final game before joining the RCAF, the Kraut line of Schmidt, Bauer and Dumart had 11 points and led Boston to an 8-1 win over Montreal. Afterwards they were carried off ice by teammates while the crowd stood and sang "Auld Lang Syne".
1960 - Detroit Red Wings traded Red Kelly to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Marc Reaume.
1993 - Calgary's Theoren Fleury posted +/- rating of +9 rating in a 13-1 Flames' win against San Jose. Fleury scored a goal and added five assists in the game.
1999 - Los Angeles' Russ Courtnall played in his 1,000th NHL game in the Kings' 3-0 loss at Phoenix. The milestone made Russ (and St. Louis' Geoff) the first two brothers in history to each play 1,000 career NHL games.
2001 - Buffalo's Maxim Afinogenov became the first player to score OT goals in consecutive regular season games (since the NHL adopted the 5-minute extra period in 1983-84) when the Sabres beat the Senators 2-1 at Ottawa.
2001 - Geoff Sanderson scored the first hat trick in Columbus Blue Jackets history, in a 3-2 win against the visiting Nashville Predators.
