Mud Bruneteau

Detroit Red Wings, 1936

Fresh out of the IHL, two-way winger Modere "Mud" Bruneteau skated in 24 regular-season games for the Wings, scoring a mere two goals, and then earned himself a place in hockey legend in the playoffs. In Game One of Detroit's semi-final series against the Montreal Maroons, Bruneteau ended the longest playoff match in NHL history by scoring at 16:30 of the sixth overtime period. The Wings went on to win the Stanley Cup and Bruneteau's famous tally launched his solid, productive NHL career that lasted 11 seasons and included another Cup in 1943.
