Some memorable dates this week in Blackhawk history:

  • On the same date in 2003, goalie Mike Leighton registered the first of three Blackhawks shutouts in the last 0-0 tie in team history at the United Center against Phoenix.

  • On January 9, 1936, John Gottselig became the third Hawk to tally four goals in a game as he lit the lamp against the New York Americans.

  • On that date in 1974, Pit Martin registered his fifth and final hat trick in a Chicago Blackhawks uniform against Los Angeles at the Stadium.

  • On January 10, 1991, the Hawks tied a team record for five power play goals in a game while defeating Toronto at the Stadium 7-2.

  • Denis Savard set a Hawks mark for the fastest goal to start a period when he scored four seconds into the 3rd period against Hartford on January 12, 1986.
