1989: Wayne Gretzky becomes the all-time leading points scorer in the NHL, passing Gordie Howe's 1,850 career points with goal to tie a game between his current team, the Los Angeles Kings, and his former team, the Edmonton Oilers, at 4-4. He would score again in overtime to give the Kings the win. By the time he retired in 1999, Gretzky will have collected a total of 2,857 points in his career.
