50 in 39 games

25 years ago tonight wayne gretzky scored 5 goals against the philadelphia flyers and broke an nhl record shared by maurice richard and mike bossy. the fifth goal was into the empty net, which made it 50 in 39. the old record was 50 in 50 (by richard and bossy). gretzky scored 92 in the 1981-82 season. those records i doubt will be broken.
