Darryl Sittler's 10 Point Game as a Maple Leaf, Will It Ever Be Broken?

Shawn OwensAnalyst IAugust 21, 2008

Will we ever see a 10 point game from one player ever again in the NHL? In 1976, Daryl Sittler, while playing for the Toronto Maple Leafs, scored 10 points in one game against the Boston Bruins.  A 32 year record that hasn't fallen yet.

Sittler once said that he thought when Gretzky and Lemieux were putting up a couple of hundred points per a season, they would have a shot at it.  It never happened and Sittler is still the holder of this amazing record. There is talk with the way Ovechkin, Malkin and Crosby play they would have a chance to break this record, but I don't see it.

Look, if Gretzky (The Great One) couldn't do it, the most he ever had was eight points in a game and Mario couldn't do it, the most points he ever had was eight points as well, then I can't see anyone doing it. This record is Sittler's and only Sittler's. Very rarely do you even see a goalie give up 10 goals in a game now a days.  

Let a lone one guy making it all happen.  The game has changed so much in time that records are just that records that will never fall.
