On This Date in Chicago Blackhawks history,
On March 29, 1970 Tony Esposito collected his 15th shutout of the season when he blanked the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-0. The 15 shutouts set a modern day record that has only been approached by Dominik Hasek who had 13 with the Buffalo Sabres in 1997-1998.
Esposito is tied for 9th all-time with 76 shutouts with another former Blackhawks goalie Eddie Belfour. Martin Brodeur is the current all-time shutout leader with 120 career shutouts, but on this date 43 years ago Tony Esposito collected a regular season record 15th shutout.
