Some memorable dates this week in Blackhawk history:
The Blackhawks set a team mark for the fastest five goals to start a period (5 minutes, 38 seconds into the second) at Los Angeles on February 1, 1990. Duane Sutter started the barrage at 2:12 followed in order by Dirk Graham, Doug Wilson, Mike Hudson and Jocelyn Lemieux.
Also on that date in 1962, Bobby Hull notched his second four-goal game at Detroit as the Hawks beat the Red Wings 7-4.
February 3, 1982 was an historic night when Grant Mulvey set a team record with five goals in a 9-5 win over St. Louis. He also picked up two assists in the game to tie Max Bentley’s single-game mark. Four of Mulvey's scores came in the opening period, tying yet another team record.
On February 3, 1932, Paul Thompson became the second Hawks player to rack up four goals in a game during a 7-0 whitewashing of Toronto.
Brent Sutter established a Chicago record on February 5, 1995 with the fastest goal to start a game when he scored in 8 seconds against the Canucks. Bernie Nicholls lit the lamp four times in that same game as the Hawks cruised to a 9-5 victory.
On February 6, 2003 in Calgary, the Hawks tied one of their oldest team records with ten shots in the overtime period as they battled to a 2-2 tie with the Flames. The original team mark came in 1931 against Toronto.
Doug Bentley and Bill Thoms became the first Hawks to have multiple hat tricks in a game as they crushed the Rangers 8-4 at the Stadium on February 7, 1943.
On February 8, 1990, team captain Dirk Graham picked up his only Hawk hat trick in an 8-6 win over the Red Wings in Detroit.
