Some memorable dates this week in Blackhawk history:
- The Hawks ran a team mark of 12 road games without a loss (6-0-6) from November 2 through December 16, 1967.
- Dennis Hull registered his first Blackhawks hat trick at Minnesota on November 4, 1972.
- Doug Wilson set a Blackhawks record by taking 12 shots during a 6-3 Chicago loss at New Jersey on November 6, 1983.
- Hawks Hall of Fame goalie Glenn Hall ended his NHL-record streak of playing in 503 straight games when a back injury in Boston forced him to give way to Denis DeJordy as the Hawks tied the Bruins 3-3 on November 7, 1962.
- Also on November 7, 1992, Jeremy Roenick tallied one of his six career Blackhawks hat tricks.
- The same date in 1987 saw Wayne Presley become the first Blackhawk to score three power play goals in a game at the Chicago Stadium in an 8-5 victory over Minnesota. The team added two more with the man advantage for a Hawks team record.
- November 8 is great night for Hawk hat tricks; Max Bentley (1945), Dan Maloney (1972), Denis Savard (1987) and Michel Goulet (1992) have all netted three goals on that date.
- On that same date in 1998, Chris Chelios became Chicago's all-time leader in career penalty minutes, when his two minors (in a 3-2 loss to Edmonton) gave him 1,444 PIM's with the Blackhawks, two more than Keith Magnuson (who retired with 1,442 PIM).
- On November 9, 1969, Jim Wiste set a Hawks record with four assists in one period. Wiste also set a Blackhawks rookie record for assists (4) in one game on that night, a mark that has since been tied by Mark Lavarre and Brent Seabrook.
