The league also moves the goal posts to the back of the end zones. 1989 --- Mario Lemieux ties NHL playoff records with four first-period goals, five overall and eight points as the Pittsburgh Penguins beat Philadelphia 10-7 to take a 3-2 lead in the Patrick Division finals. 1993 --- Micheal Williams sets an NBA record for consecutive free throws with 84. He made 10 straight as the Minnesota Timberwolves beat Utah 113-111. Calvin Murphy held the previous mark of 78 for Houston in 1981. 1993 --- Pittsburgh's NHL-record 14-game playoff winning streak and its overall 21-game unbeaten string are snapped as the New Jersey Devils beat the Penguins 4-1. 1995 --- Major League Baseball returns after a 257-day players' strike as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Florida Marlins 8-7. 1997 --- Phoenix's Rex Chapman makes a playoff-record nine 3-pointers en route to career-high 42 points in a 106-101 win at Seattle. Chapman broke the old playoff mark of eight 3s set by Dan Majerle of Phoenix against Seattle on June 1, 1993. 2000 --- The San Jose Sharks, the Western Conference's No. 8 seed, eliminate the NHL's regular-season champions, the St. Louis Blues, with a 3-1 victory in Game 7. The Blues are the second NHL regular-season champion to get knocked out in the first round, joining the 1991 Chicago Blackhawks. 2006 --- Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams is suspended for the 2006 season by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy for the fourth time. 2009 --- San Antonio's Tony Parker matches George Gervin's franchise playoff record for points in a half, scoring 31 in the first two quarters of the Spurs' 99-90 loss to Dallas in Game 4 of their series. Parker makes 12 of 17 shots, including two 3-pointers, to help the Spurs take a 55-51 halftime lead. Parker finishes with 43 points. 2010 --- Dwyane Wade sets franchise playoff records with 46 points, 30 in the second half, and Miami staves off elimination by beating Boston 101-92 in Game 4 of an Eastern Conference first-round series. 2013 --- Miami's Ray Allen scores 23 points and breaks the NBA career playoff record for 3-pointers, and the Heat beat the Milwaukee Bucks 104-91 for a 3-0 lead in their first-round series. Allen's five 3-pointers against the Bucks gives him 322 for his career, two more than Reggie Miller.
