The Game is a mental game where the objective is to avoid thinking about The Game itself. Thinking about The Game constitutes a loss, which must be announced each time it occurs.

This is a list of individual records recognized by the National Hockey League through the end of the 2018-19 NHL season. Most seasons: Gordie Howe (1946–47 to 1970–1971; 1979–1980) and Chris Chelios (1983–84 to 2009–10, except for the 2004–05 NHL lock-out), 26.

Former Australian Test skipper Mark Taylor has slammed suggestions that David Warner should have stopped at 334 during his historic innings at the Adelaide Oval out of respect for Don Bradman's high score.

Warner rewrote the history books on Saturday when he smashed 335 not out to claim the highest score made at the Adelaide Oval and become the second highest scoring Aussie in a Test match, narrowly edging Bradman by a single run.

But some areas of the game have criticised Warner for topping Bradman's record with Australia already firmly in the driver's seat.

Taylor found himself in a similar predicament when he himself high scored with 334 after two day's play against Pakistan in 1998, ultimately deciding to declare ahead of day three to preserve the great's record.

But the former skipper stressed he was under drastically different circumstances when he made his decision 21-years ago, and congratulated Warner on his history changing feat.

"The game is never about individual records and I certainly congratulate Dave on the way he played this innings," Taylor exclusively told Wide World of Sports.

"There was no doubt when he was getting close to that score, and I think also the fact that getting close to the time when Australia had to declare, Bradman's score would have come into the equation. But as you do in the game you take every ball on its merits.

"I can think back when I made my 300. I got to 334 with two balls to go on the second night. I tried to hit them as David did, I tried to hit them for runs, and they both were fielded and stopped me from going past Bradman's score.

"Had it not been fielded I would have taken the runs. And I would have ended up on 335. Because the game is not about individual records, the game is about winning and losing. I never set out to make 300 and I'm sure the great sir Donald Bradman never set out to make 300."

Sitting at 599 at stumps, Taylor deliberated over returning to the crease for a strategic 20-minute stand to tire his opponents ahead of day three, but admitted he ultimately decided against it in fear of being thought to have returned for selfish reasons.

"I must admit I contemplated because it thought going out to bat for 20-minutes on the next day," he said. It would just have put them out tin the field again after two hot days.

"But then I did think about the score. If I did that and ended up 341 not out, I was worried people would assume I only went out there to go past Bradman's score. Our team total was 599. That's enough runs to win a Test match.

"It was certainly something I thought about because I had time to think about it. I ended up on 334 after two days so it gave me a chance to think about. I would have liked to put my bat back out on the field for another 20 minutes. It would have meant I would have gone past Don Bradman's score, and that's when it came into the equation."

Warner's knock has thrust Australia firmly in the driver's seat to sweep the Test series, which Taylor assured is the only thing that should concern a batsman.

"By playing the way he is, he's put Australia in a great position to win this Test match," he said.

"As David did here, to me, it was always about trying to win the game of cricket, that's why you play the game. That's what cricket is all about."
