On this date in Chicago Blackhawks history,
On February 21, 1970 in Chicago Stadium the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the New York Rangers 4-2. In the contest Bobby Hull scored his 500th goal when he beat Rangers goalie Ed Glacomin. Hull ended up scoring a franchise high 604 goals in his great Blackhawks career.
The 1969-70 Blackhawks finished in 1st place with 45-22-9 record. They swept the Detroit Red Wings in the first round of the playoffs before getting swept out of the playoffs by the Boston Bruins.
A great milestone for a great Blackhawk happened 43 years ago today!
