Published Add your comment

The Toronto Maple Leafs Forward James van Riemsdyk helped the team equal an NHL scoring record that has stood since 1957.

The record for quickest goal in a period was first set at four seconds in 1957 by Claude Provost of the Montreal Canadiens.

It was last equalled in 1986 by Denis Savard of the Chicago Blackhawks and now JVR has matched it after 28 years.

Following the opening face-off in the second period of their match with the Philadelphia Flyers the Maple Leafs went straight to the end and scored to make the score 1-1.
