On January 4, 1984, the Minnesota North Stars visited the Northlands Coliseum in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada to take on the Oilers. By the end of the game the two teams scored a modern day record combined 20 goals. Minnesota started Don Beaupre between the pipes and Edmonton countered with Grant Fuhr, there is no way they could have been prepared for the assault they were about to endure.
In the third period the North Stars struck first just 2 minutes and 20 seconds in Keith Acton scored a goal, then a little over a minute later his teammate Craig Hartsburg rang one up, with the score 10-8 and plenty of time on the clock, it looked like the North Stars had a shot. Paul Coffey took the wind out of Minnesota by scoring his second goal on the night at the 7:10 mark. It would take over eight minutes for another goal to be put in the net, this time it was Randy Gregg scoring, less than 5 minutes later the Oilers got the W by the score of 12-8. The 20 combined goals had been the most total goals scored in a game since January 10, 1920 when the Montreal Canadiens beat the Toronto St. Patricks 14-7.
