On this date in Chicago Blackhawks history,

On November 30, 2007 in the United Center, Dustin Byfuglien recorded his first career hat trick in a 6-1 victory against the Phoenix Coyotes.  Byfuglien’s part in Blackhawks history is conflicted with many remembering him as a lazy player for his first three seasons, but most like me see him as an important piece in the Stanley Cup run in 2010. Byfulien had 11 goals and 5 assists and was the big hitter especially against the Canucks and Flyers in 2010.

Byfuglien had 45 career goals in his five seasons in Chicago and on this date he collected three of them in the UC.  To bad we can’t hear Chelsea Dagger sooner than later!
