Some memorable dates this week in Blackhawk history:
Jonathan Toews got his first career game-winning goal in a 3-2 decision over St. Louis last year on November 11. The goal was his sixth of the season, on his way to 24 for the year, which led all NHL rookies.
On the same date in 1987, the Hawks set a team record of five power play goals in a game in a 6-3 win over Detroit. Wayne Presley became the first Blackhawk to notch a hat trick with all three goals coming on the man-advantage.
The Hawks lone draft pick in 1968, John Marks, set a team standard for the fastest two goals from the start of a game on November 13, 1975, when he tallied at the 14- and 33- second marks in a 5-5 tie at Philadelphia.
Steve Larmer recorded his first career hat trick on November 14, 1982, in a 5-4 triumph at the Stadium against Minnesota. Larmer is the only Hawks rookie to have two in his first campaign as he went on to capture the 1983 Calder Trophy.
On November 15, 1981, the Blackhawks walloped the then Colorado Rockies (now the New Jersey Devils) 10-0 at the Chicago Stadium.
The Hawks played their first NHL game on November 17, 1926, at the Chicago Coliseum with a 4-1 victory over the Toronto St. Pats, who became the Maple Leafs the next season.
Patrick Sharp scored his first NHL hat trick on November 17, 2007, in a 5-3 win in Detroit. His game-winner came short-handed, one of sever he tallied last season to tie for the top spot in the NHL.
Also on that date in 1956, Jack McIntyre scored four goals in a 6-3 decision over the Maple Leafs in Toronto.
