Today in Blackhawks History: October 31

Halloween is a popular night in Blackhawks history:
  • Rookie Dave Bolland earned his first NHL point with an assist on Oct. 31, 2007, in a game against the Stars in Dallas.
  • In 1987, Denis Savard and Troy Murray tied a team record by scoring two shorthanded goals 12 seconds apart at Toronto.
  • On Oct. 31, 1979, at the Stadium, Hall of Famer Tony Esposito registered the 66th shutout of his Hawks career as he and Buffalo's Bob Suave battled to a scoreless tie in the days before overtime and shutouts.
  • It was on Halloween in 1991 that the Hawks picked up their 1,750th NHL regular season victory by edging the New York Islanders 4-3.
