The Chicago Blackhawks have an incredibly important game tonight against the Nashville Predators. Some would call it a must-win in terms of their playoff chances. That is a big story in the NHL but the biggest story is coming over in Las Vegas, Nevada. Patrick Marleau of the San Jose Sharks is going to play in his 1768th career NHL game against the Vegas Golden Knights. That total will pass the legendary Gordie Howe for the most in the history of the league.
Anytime you pass Gordie in any category, you know that you are special. Marleau tied the record on Saturday night against the Minnesota Wild. In his career, he has played for the Toronto Maple Leafs and Pittsburgh Penguins as well but everybody knows that he is a legendary San Jose Shark.
