    Rocket Richard set the standard with 50 goals in 50 games back in 1944-45 and Mike Bossy equaled it in 1980-81, but the following year, Gretzky obliterated the record, scoring 50 goals in just 39 games.

    He set the record by scoring five goals in this game against the Philadelphia Flyers (love those long pants). This clip shows all five goals, including the record-setting empty-netter.
