Fastest ever

When Tomas Holmstrom and Pavel Datsyuk scored five seconds apart in the second period in Columbus, tonight, they broke a franchise record first set 71 years ago. Syd Howe and Larry Aurie held the old mark of seven seconds, set on Nov.5, 1936, against Toronto.
That seven-second mark was matched on Nov, 25, 1987, when Jeff Sharples and Gerard Gallant scored against Winnipeg.
The NHL record for fastest two goals by one team is three seconds set by Jim Dowd and Richard Park of Minnesota, Jan. 21, 2004.

It should be noted that Park's record setter was fired into an empty net.
