New Hockey Record
There are too many records out there of the following ilk: The Clinton Bantams are the first hockey team of 10-year-olds to have won a hockey game in Clinton, Ontario, on Sunday, December 12th, 2004.
Not that I wish to denigrate the accomplishments of the London Knights, who have gone unbeaten in 30 games (28 wins, two ties) to set a new record in Canadian junior hockey (the primary feeder system for the NHL); that is indeed a very impressive string of performances, reflecting considerable talent on the team. It also has the fans doubly delighted now, when there is no NHL hockey to watch. The games are SRO and local sports networks vie to broadcast them.
It will be even more impressive, though, if the Knights pass the 1979-80 Flyers record of 35 straight unbeaten games.
