For two and a half years, Adam Oates to Brett Hull was as sure a thing as the NHL had. Oates came over to St. Louis from Detroit in 1989 (the Red Wings got the legendary Bernie Federko in the deal) and transformed Hull's game with his arsenal of pin-point passes, making the easygoing right winger into a scoring machine. In the 1990-91 season Hull exploded for 50 goals in 49 games, becoming only the fifth player in league history to tally 50 goals in 50 games. He finished the season with a record-setting 86 goals, 42 of them set up by Oates. Oates had a banner year as well, setting the team record for both assists (90) and points (115) by a center. Tonight at 7:45 p.m. at the Pageant (6161 Delmar Boulevard; www.thepageant.com) the duo is reunited as Hull & Oates Unplugged to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their shared feat. Kelly Chase hosts the trip down memory lane, which includes a few surprise guests. Admission is $25, and the evening is for the 21 and older crowd only. If you miss that cut-off, don't worry; next year marks the 25th anniversary of the second time Hull racked up 50 goals in 50 games. Maybe you can go to that party.
