While there's an element of providence in any good fortune, hearing Wayne Gretzky talk about luck as a factor in setting what he believes is his toughest record to break is still a little odd:

This is another cut scene from EA Sports' new "NHL 12", as The Great One will appear when someone on your team reaches a specific achievement in the game. Like, for example, 50 goals in 39 games. Which as Gretzky said does seem a tad difficult.

Also difficult: Finding an ill word to say about Gordie Howe. Gretzky doesn't have one:

If you missed the first video from EA Sports on Wednesday, check out Gretzky on what it takes to be a legend. These are pretty cool cut scenes in the video game. Not as cool as the ones in "Zero Wing"; boy, what we wouldn't give to see Gretz look at the camera and declare "all your base are belong to us."

On Friday, we close out the Great One's NHL 12 videos, including his being the all-time NHL leader in goals.
