Mickey Mouse Devils, has it really been 30 years?

Nov. 19, 1983

Thirty years ago, the Edmonton Oilers beat the New Jersey Devils 13-4 in Edmonton to improve to 17-3-1 on the season. Wayne Gretzky had three goals and five assists.

"They are putting a Mickey Mouse operation on the ice,” Gretzky said afterward. "It's not funny, it's disappointing. [Devils management] better get their acts together. They had better start getting better personnel and start putting them on the ice. It's ruining hockey."
