No. 8: Mikko Leinonen, 1982 Semi-Finals


In Game 2 of the 1982 Division Semifinals against the Philadelphia Flyers, forward Mikko Leinonen joined Wayne Gretzky as the only two players in history to record six assists in one game. Leinonen's six pack helped the Rangers to a 7-3 victory over the Flyers. The Rangers were an offensive powerhouse throughout the series, out-scoring Philadelphia 19-15 in the four-game series win. Ultimately though, the Rangers would lose to the eventual Stanley Cup Champion New York Islanders, 4-2, in the Division Finals.
