The season began with a new head coach Billy Reay who would go on to coach the Blackhawks until 34 games into the 1976-1977 season. Reay led the Blackhawks in his first season to a second place record of 36-22-12 with an outstanding record at Chicago Stadium of 26-4-5.  Home ice didn’t work out for the Blackhawks come playoff time with the Hawks losing Game #7 at Chicago Stadium 4-2 against the Detroit Red Wings.  Just another disappointing ending to a Blackhawks team during the majority of the 60’s.

#64 All-time scorer in Blackhawks history is Edward Bulley who scored 94 goals and 102 assists in 349 games from 1976-1982. Bulley played for two more seasons after leaving the Hawks and his career ended with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1984.
