    Here is yet another amazing story about the incomparable Gordie Howe.
    In September 1974, Team Canada (WHA version) faced the same Soviet team the NHLers barely beat 2 years earlier.
    Canada would win only one game but Gordie Howe would finish 4th among combined scorers with 3 goals and 7 points.
    At the time Gordie was forty-six years old...about 20-25 years older than most of the Soviet players.
    By contrast, Alexandr Yakushev, the USSR's leading scorer with 8 points, was 27 at the time.

    The most amazing stat of his career might be this one: he finished in the top 5 in NHL scoring for 20 consecutive years! Amazing! Most players don't even play that long!!
