Archives: Vancouver Canucks set new NHL record

This day in Vancouver history: Feb. 25, 1971

In an away game versus the Boston Bruins, 22-year-old Vancouver Canucks goalie Dunc Wilson was lit up three times within 20 seconds to set a still-standing NHL record for the fastest three goals by one team.

Wilson, one of three Canucks goalies that season, posted a dismal 3–25–2 record in 35 appearances.
