GRETZKY CLOSES IN ON HOWE’S RECORD

SHARE GRETZKY CLOSES IN ON HOWE’S RECORD

Wayne Gretzky drew within one point of tying Gordie Howe for all-time NHL points lead when he set up Steve Kasper's winning goal with one second left in the game Friday night, lifting the Los Angeles Kings to a 6-5 triumph over the Vancouver Canucks.

Gretzky's third assist of the game, a backhand pass, was his 1,849th career point. He can equal Gordie Howe's record 1850 Sunday night at Edmonton against his former team.
