Gordie Howe scores again
From the frozen ponds of rural Saskatchewan to hockey's big league in the Motor City, Gordie Howe was perhaps the game's most dominant player of his era. From 1946 to 1971 he was the star right winger for the Detroit Red Wings, setting league records and winning the Stanley Cup four times. CBC Archives presents a selection of clips about the man fans know as "Mr. Hockey."
• In 1949 Howe set a Red Wings franchise record for goals in a playoff series, scoring eight goals over seven games against the Montreal Canadiens. His record stood until May 1, 2008, when Johan Franzen, also of the Detroit Red Wings, scored nine goals in just four games in a series against the Colorado Avalanche.
