Brittanie Cecil - Hockey Fan Fatality At any high-quality hockey game, pucks flying into the crowd at great speeds are a common occurrence. Injuries to fans occasionally happen. Only once in the long history of the NHL has a spectator been killed as a result of being struck by a puck. The victim was Brittanie Cecil, who ironically had been given her ticket to the game as an early 14th birthday present. Brittanie, an athletic girl from West Alexandria, OH, was watching the Columbus Blue Jackets play the Calgary Flames at Columbus' Nationwide Arena on March 16, 2002. A slapshot by the Blue Jackets' Espen Knutsen was deflected by the Flames' Derek Morris. It went over the glass behind the net, striking Brittanie in the left temple. Play carried on as the players were unaware of having inadvertently caused any serious injury. Although Brittanie had suffered a skull fracture, she walked on her own power to a first-aid station before being taken to Columbus Children's Hospital in an ambulance. Her only visible injury was a gash on her forehead. At the hospital, she suffered an initial seizure and was admitted, but the next day she appeared to be recovering. Brittanie was both communicative and ambulatory, and had no complaints of pain or dizziness. A CT-scan, however, had failed to catch a torn vertebral artery, resulting in severe clotting and swelling of the brain. On March 18, she developed a high fever and lost consciousness. She died nearly 48 hours after being struck, at 5:15 p.m. on March 18, 2002, two days before her 14th birthday. Brittanie's funeral cortege drew a procession of more than 150 cars. Attending the service was Blue Jackets' general manager Doug MacLean who spoke on behalf of the team. Knutsen and Morris, the two players who combined for the fatal slapshot, expressed remorse following Brittanie's death. Morris, who deflected the puck, explained, "You try to say, 'It happens all the time,' but you can't. I don't know how many times pucks get deflected over the glass, but it doesn't make it any better. You can always say, 'It's not my fault,' but you always feel like it is, a little." Knutsen was given the option of sitting out the next game by Blue Jackets coach Dave King. He chose to play, telling reporters, "I think about it all the time. It was a terrible accident, and I cannot get it off my mind." Knutsen was so shaken by what had happened that he could not handle meeting Brittanie's family until 2010--eight years after the accident. The following season, the NHL mandated that safety netting be installed in every arena to protect spectators seated behind the goal nets. This move was initially greeted with hostility by longtime hockey fans who didn't want their view of games obstructed and who further perceived the netting as an overreaction to a freak accident.

Bob Baun - Broken Leg Goal A sports classic: It's April 23, 1964; Game #6 of the 1964 Stanley Cup finals. The Detroit Red Wings lead the Toronto Maple Leafs three games to two and are looking to clinch the Cup at the Detroit Olympia. During the third period, Toronto defenceman Bobby Baun crumples to the ice and has to be taken to the Leafs' dressing room on a stretcher. He's done for the night, right? Nope! Believing he only has a pinched nerve in his leg, Baun returns in time for the overtime period--and scores the winning goal! A post-game medical examination reveals that Baun had broken his leg. (Two nights later, Baun plays in the deciding seventh game too and leads Toronto to a 4-0 win and the Stanley Cup.)

1939 Rangers-Leafs NHL Game This is a quaint National Film Board of Canada featurette on hockey titled Hot Ice. Most of it focuses on a New York Rangers-Toronto Maple Leafs game at Maple Leaf Gardens played on November 11, 1939. It features an interesting look at old-time hockey. Notice there is no center red line in 1939 and both teams share the same penalty box. Five months later the same two teams would meet in the 1940 Stanley Cup finals, with the Rangers prevailing in six games.

Ian Turnbull - 5 Goals on 5 shots On February 2, 1977 Ian Turnbull, a 23-year-old defenceman for the Toronto Maple Leafs, set two NHL records that still stand: He scored five goals on five shots in Toronto's 9-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings at Maple Leaf Gardens. No defenceman has equalled the feat and no other NHL player, regardless of his position, has ever scored five goals on five shots. Turnbull scored 22 goals the entire season. Here's his fifth goal--a beauty.

Boston Bruins Amazing Comeback On May 13, 2013, one of the most stunning and improbable comebacks in sports history occurred. With under 11 minutes left in regulation time, the Boston Bruins rallied from a 4-1 deficit in the seventh game of their opening round NHL playoff series versus the Toronto Maple Leafs. Boston had only scored three goals in the previous eight periods of the series before rallying. It was wild euphoria for Boston's fans--but utter disbelief for Toronto's fans. This condensed highlight clip shows the Leafs taking a 4-1 lead in the third period, the three Boston goals that tied the game, and the overtime winner by Patrice Bergeron.
