(Daniel St. Louis/Moncton Wildcats)

1st Star: C Phillip Danault, Moncton (QMJHL)
The Line: 4GP, 6A, +2 plus/minus

Moncton wrapped up its regular-season game with four games in seven days, due to weather-related postponements from earlier this season. Danault collected six assists in three of the four tilts, including three on March 13 in a 6-1 victory over Saint John and a pair on March 17 in a 5-2 win at Acadie-Bathurst. Danault logged nine goals and 32 assists in 27 games for Moncton, and his 85 total points (including 14G, 30A with Victoriaville) were second-most on the team. The Wildcats finished the regular season with a 42-23-2-1 record and will face Victoriaville—Danault’s former team—in the first round of the QMJHL playoffs.

Blackhawks Magazine's "Blackhawks Illustrated" feature went inside the room to provide this handy map to spot where each player sits.

When the Blackhawks took the ice in Los Angeles on Jan. 19, the goal was merely to spoil the Kings' Stanley Cup banner-raising ceremony. Chicago won decisively, 5-2... and then they kept winning. Their six straight victories to begin the campaign set a franchise record, and it wasn't until Jan. 30 that the team dropped their first point in a shootout loss at Minnesota. Whispers about the NHL record started once the Blackhawks crossed the 10, 11, 12-game mark without a regulation loss, and history was made on Feb. 15 when Chicago claimed a 2-1 victory against San Jose for their 17th consecutive game with a point gained in the standings.

And still that was not enough. The team finished a seven-game homestand earning 13 of 14 possible points, then kept going strong—20, 21, 22. Another record approached on the horizon: the team's mark of nine straight wins, set in December 2008, with many of the same core players that were driving this current streak. That one fell on March 5 with an emphatic 5-3 victory over the Wild at home.

In the infograph below, we looked at the numbers and stats that defined the Blackhawks' amazing run and celebrated the workhorses and the difference-makers that helped make history.

1st Star: C/RW Jimmy Hayes, Rockford (AHL)
The Line: 3GP, 3G, 2A, +2 plus/minus, first career hat trick

The IceHogs swept a quick two-game stint in Oklahoma City over the weekend, coming from behind in both tilts, including a 7-4 stomping on Saturday, courtesy of a four-goal burst in the third period. Jimmy Hayes was the undisputed star of that game, notching his first professional hat trick and adding two assists for a career-high five-point night. Hayes opened the scoring on the power play in the second period, added a second tally later that period and capped off his night with an empty-netter.
