When the NHL finally gets around to dropping the puck at 3 p.m. Saturday, if will officially bring to a conclusion the 11th work stoppage among the four majors sports in 41 years.
In that time, the four area teams will have lost a total of 337 regular-season games to those stoppages (*that includes the three NFL scab games in 1987, which were even worse than not being played at all). That's in addition to the leagues having to cancel one World Series and one Stanley Cup Final.
Here are those 11 stoppages with the local team's head coach, number of games played and missed, their record and postseason performance:
