(AP) -- Of Al Arbour's numerous NHL achievements, one stands out to his former coaching colleague and mentor, Scotty Bowman.
Upon learning of Arbour's death on Friday, Bowman marveled at how the former New York Islanders coach was capable of winning 740 games and four Stanley Cup championships with just one team.
"Nobody can do that," Bowman told The Associated Press by phone. "Most of the other coaches, we have to move around to get our message across. But he was able to do it over a 20-year span, which is an awesome feat."
