We had so much fun doing our Countdown to Faceoff series last season that we decided to do it again.  In case you’re new to the series, we’ll do a roster preview as we count down the days until the Chicago Blackhawks  October 9th season opener against the Dallas Stars.

We are still 5 days away from running into a sweater jersey that any Chicago Blackhawks have every worn and of course we are still 10 away from Patrick Kane‘s #88 and the first active Blackhawk sweater number and season preview.  Tonight we will look at some single game records in Chicago Blackhawks history.

Most goals in one Game- 12- January 30, 1969 vs Philadelphia Flyers

Biggest Comeback- Down 5-0 October 13, 2009 vs Calgary Flames

Longest Shootout-11 Rounds December 1, 2009 vs Columbus Blue Jackets

Most Goals Player- 5 Grant Mulvey February 3, 1982

Most Assists-6 Pat Stapleton March 30, 1969

Most Points- 7 Max Bentley January 28, 1943 4 Goals 3 Assists, Grant Mulvey February 3, 1982 5 Goals 2 Assists

Be on the lookout for our Countdown to Faceoff series as we continue to work our way to the season opener on October 9th. We’re 98 days from the season opener.  Is it October yet???
