April 4, 1986

In the next-to-last game of the season, Wayne Gretzky breaks his own NHL record for points in a season. The Great One gets three assists to boost his total to 214 points, two more than he scored in 1981-82.

All three Gretzky assists come during Edmonton power plays; two on goals by Jari Kurri and one by Paul Coffey in the Oilers' 9-3 loss to the Flames in Calgary.

Gretzky will get an assist in Edmonton's 80th game to finish with still-standing NHL records of 215 points and 163 assists.
