What happened on April 10 in the history of the New York Rangers

On this date in 1993, Mark Messier had two assists, getting helpers on the only two goals scored by the New York Rangers in 4-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins. It was the 18h time that Messier had two or more assists in a game that season, tying a Rangers record that was held by his teammate, Brian Leetch, and Jean Ratelle.

18 may seem like a lot, but consider this.
