Darryl Sittler's Ten Point Game: Defining Moments In Leaf History, Number 3

It was February 7, 1976. The Toronto Maple Leafs were about to take on the Boston Bruins in what was essentially just another regular season game. Nobody had any idea that they were about to witness one of the most legendary games in NHL history.

By the end of the second period, the Leafs had scored eight goals, seven of which Darryl Sittler was involved in. It suddenly became a very real possibility that Darryl Sittler might set a record for the most points in a single game.

Sittler started the third period off well scoring within the first minute of play. He added another by the halfway mark of the period, needing only one more point to break the record.

With less than four minutes remaining, Sittler slid the puck out from behind net, where it deflected off a leg in front and right back into the net giving him his tenth point of the game.

Sittler finished the game with six goals and four assists giving him ten points, an NHL record that is still unbroken to this day.
