1962: Chicago Blackhawks goalie Glenn Hall doesn't play against the Montreal Canadiens at the Forum, ending one of the most incredible games-played streaks in any sport.

Hall sits out three nights after his streak of starting 502 consecutive regular-season games, the most of any goalie in NHL history, ends when he leaves in the first period against the Boston Bruins because of back problems.

Denis DeJordy starts in Hall's place and makes 33 saves to help the Blackhawks to a 3-1 win. DeJordy plays each of the next three games before Hall returns on Nov. 17.



1934: Armand Mondou of the Canadiens becomes the first player in NHL history to be awarded a penalty shot. Mondou fails to score against goalie George Hainsworth, and the Toronto Maple Leafs defeat the Canadiens 2-1 in overtime at Maple Leaf Gardens.


1942: The New York Rangers get overtime goals by Bryan Hextall Sr. and Lynn Patrick to defeat the Chicago Blackhawks 5-3 . It's the NHL's final regular-season overtime game until the 1983-84 season, when a five-minute, sudden-death period is added to games that are tied after 60 minutes. In the earlier version of OT, teams play a full 10-minute extra period.


1963: Gordie Howe of the Detroit Red Wings becomes the NHL's all-time leading goal-scorer, passing Maurice Richard. Appropriately, the record-setting goal comes in a 3-0 victory against the visiting Canadiens, Richard's longtime team before retiring in 1960. Goal No. 545 comes when Howe scores shorthanded against goalie Charlie Hodge at 15:06 of the second period. He receives a 10-minute ovation from the crowd of 15,077 at Olympia Stadium. It comes 17 years to the day when Howe plays on a line with left wing Ted Lindsay and center Alex Delvecchio for the first time; the trio is later nicknamed "The Production Line."

1979: Future Hall of Famer Michel Goulet scores his first NHL goal for the Quebec Nordiques in the first period of a 5-4 loss to the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. Exactly eight years later, another future Hall of Fame forward, Brendan Shanahan, also scores his first NHL goal in a game against the Rangers -- a 3-2 win by the New Jersey Devils at the Garden.


1999: Steve Yzerman of the Red Wings becomes the NHL's all-time leader in points among players who spend their entire careers with one team. The milestone comes when he scores a goal in a 4-2 road victory against the Dallas Stars; it gives him 1,495 points, one more than Mario Lemieux (Pittsburgh Penguins). Yzerman finishes his NHL career with 1,755 points, all with the Red Wings.

2007: Jeremy Roenick scores his 500th NHL goal to help the San Jose Sharks defeat the visiting Phoenix Coyotes 4-1. Roenick becomes the third U.S.-born player to score 500 goals.


2015: Alex Ovechkin matches his NHL career high with 15 shots on goal, but none of them gets past Detroit goalie Petr Mrazek, who earns his sixth NHL shutout by making 38 saves in a 1-0 victory against the Washington Capitals at Joe Louis Arena. Detroit's Andreas Athanasiou scores 4:06 into the third period.

2017: Roberto Luongo earns his 455th victory win by making 24 saves to help the Florida Panthers defeat the Buffalo Sabres 4-1 at KeyBank Center. Luongo passes Curtis Joseph for fourth place on the NHL's all-time wins list.


2018: The Philadelphia Flyers defeat the Chicago 4-0 at Wells Fargo Center. It's their 15th consecutive regular-season win against the Blackhawks at Philadelphia since Chicago's 4-1 victory on Dec. 9, 1996.


2019: The Blackhawks survive a 57-shot barrage to hold off the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-4 at United Center. Goalie Robin Lehner matches his NHL career high with 53 saves for Chicago, including 23 in the third period when the Blackhawks are outshot 26-7.
