Shannon Miller's special guests today are two women who are trail blazers and game changers, and likely asked themselves (directly or indirectly) these two questions: IF not ME, Who? IF not NOW, When? Manon Rheaume made history on September 23, 1992 by being the first female ever to play in the NHL. Manon made her debut as a goal tender for the Tampa Bay Lightening in a game against the Boston Bruins. It was a day Manon Rheaume would never forget, and an amazing moment in history for women. Kendall Coyne made history by being the first female to participate in the NHL Skills Showcase during the NHL All-Star Weekend in San Jose, CA. Kendall Coyne competed in the Fastest Skater competition, unleashing her speed to achieve an amazing time of 14.346 seconds. Kendall skated with the confidence and skill of the world class player she is, and made her mark on our journey towards equality.
