On This Date in Chicago Blackhawks History,

On January 30, 1969 the Blackhawks traveled to the Spectrum in Philadelphia to face the Philadelphia Flyers.  The Blackhawks did not just defeat the Flyers on this evening they put on their biggest beat down of all time with a 12-0 victory with this being the biggest goal differential in a game all-time by the Hawks.

Doug Favell started for the Flyers but left the game after 6 first period goals, and even though he would be a Flyers legend Bernie Parent came in to replace Favell but also let in 6 of his own goals in the last two periods.

Jim Pappin scored one of his 7 career Blackhawks hat tricks on this night (Pappin ranks 6th all-time in Blackhawks history for hat tricks) and Dennis Hull scored two first period goals in the offensive onslaught in the city of brotherly love.

It’s not like the Flyers didn’t put any pucks on net either with Hawks goalie Denis DeJordy stopping all 37 shots that were put on him in Philly.

The Hawks put on a record show on this date 45 years ago today!
