Video- Happy 88th Birthday To Gordie Howe

Here is Gordie Howe's last goal in the NHL. called by Danny Gallivan and Mickey Redmond.

 

 

added 8:53pm, from Dave Stubbs of NHL.com,

The queue toward Canada customs at Montréal-Trudeau Airport on a March afternoon four years ago was dozens of passengers long. And there, shuffling patiently along with them, was Mr. Hockey, having arrived from Detroit.

It was then that an agent recognized Gordie Howe, who turns 88 Thursday; he plucked the legend and his son, Marty Howe, out of the line and breezed them into the country.

Soon we were on an escalator, up to a quiet area for a half-hour visit, when I broke the news:

"The Canadiens are not having a good season, Gordie," I began. "No playoffs. Chaos, pretty much. Total disarray."

With a twinkling eye and not a heartbeat of hesitation came the reply:

"Good!"

And then Gordie Howe burst into laughter.
