Flashback: The 26th anniversary of 334 Club game in New Jersey
Jan. 22 marks the 26th anniversary of a massive storm that paralyzed the New York area. The blizzard caused a delay of the Devils-Flames game by a couple of hours because the players themselves couldn't get to the arena and resulted in almost nobody in attendance. In total, 334 fans were on hand.

Poor Doug Sulliman, he didn't get a load of hats for his one-and-only NHL hat trick.
That's pretty cool, though, that they sent commemorative items to all the fans in attendance that day. Now we know why the attendance at that game all these years later doesn't sound like 334,000, with many people claiming to have been there. The group that was on hand that day is thus known as the 334 Club.
