Mar 16, 2013, 11:01 PM EDT

While acknowledging hockey history in Vancouver by donning throwback Millionaires uniforms, the Canucks made a little history against the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday.

Alexander Burrows scored six seconds into tonight’s contest, breaking the franchise record of nine seconds, which was set in 1994. (The NHL record to start a game is five seconds.)

Want a little more background on the Millionaires? Cory Schneider shares his custom mask design for tonight’s game, which captures a bit of their history in the process:

      They forgot to mention how big the accomplishment was considering he still has a lock of Duncan Keith’s hair in his hand and a piece of Bergeron’s finger in his mouth.

    Scoring six seconds in has always been a bit of a problem for the otherwise virile Mr. Burrows…?

      I have a feeling you’re about to be downvoted like crazy by Millionare fans, but that’s just straight up funny

    And that goal propelled them to a 5-2 loss.

    Then they lost to the Wings 5-2.

    Is this the ONLY game they’re playing with the Millionaires uni’s? Otherwise Schnider had a custom mask made for nothing…

      I was thinking the same thing!
      Not to mention, i did like the look, as long as they keep it few-and-far-between.
      Nothing wrong with classic looks every once in a while
