In addition to chicagoblackhawks.com's "10 Impressive Performances" list, here a few more of the most impressive games that can be added to the discussion:
In the first game of the Stanley Cup Final at Toronto on April 5, 1938, minor league goalie Alfie Moore was pulled out of a bar two hours before the game and, in his only appearance in a Blackhawks uniform, stunned the favored Maple Leafs by surrendering only one goal in a 3-1 decision. The underdog Chicago squad went on to win their second Stanley Cup.
In the playoffs at Detroit on April 7, 1963, Bobby Hull came back after missing four games because of a broken nose. He was forced to wear a helmet with a shield, but it didn’t seem to distract him: He scored his first playoff hat trick.
On Jan. 30, 1969, with Denis DeJordy in goal and Jim Pappin adding a hat trick, the Blackhawks registered the most lopsided victory in Chicago history, going 12-0 over the Flyers in Philadelphia.
Grant Mulvey set a team record by scoring five goals and picking up two assists in a 9-5 trouncing of St. Louis at the Chicago Stadium on Feb. 3, 1982.
Denis Savard became the first Blackhawk to score four goals in a playoff game on April 10, 1986 against the Maple Leafs at the Stadium.
