Happy 50th, Wayne!

Among his many records, one that stands out is his 50 goals in 39 games. 50 in 50 is special and rare. Doing it in 39 is just otherworldly. That 39th game came against our very own Philadelphia Flyers. The sad part is that he came into the game with 45 goals. His empty netter to clinch a 7-5 victory was his 5th goal of the game. Lebron who? When Wayne Gretzky played, we were all just witnesses.
