Fans of NHL legend Mark Messier will be able to celebrate his 50th birthday with a special set of programming Tuesday on NHL Network commemorating some of his career highlights.
Two of Messier's six Stanley Cup championships will be highlighted in "Classic Series: 1987 Oilers vs. Flyers" and "Classic Series: 1994 Rangers vs. Canucks." Messier helped Edmonton to a sweep of Philadelphia and New York to end a 54-year Cup drought in a seven-game epic against Vancouver. Those programs air at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m., respectively.
