The Chicago Blackhawks have had some great players and great lines, and these two all-time greats played together for a long time. 

The Chicago Blackhawks had the very famous Pony Express Line play for them in the 1940’s, and it was one of those lines that every team in the NHL feared when they faced the Hawks.

The Bentley brothers and Bill Mosienko on the right wing made up the Pony Express Line, and they were a force to deal with on a nightly basis.

Doug Bentley finished in the Top 4 for the Hart Trophy three times during his 13 year career. His best season was in 1943-44 when he scored 38 goals in 50 games.  Somehow that wasn’t good enough for the Hart trophy.

Bentley was a little guy but he was highly skilled, and he was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1964.

His linemate was Mosienko who has a record that I find it nearly impossible to ever be eclipsed.  Mosienko scored 3 goals in 21 seconds which is such a hard record to really wrap your  mind around.  There are a lot of records that people feel will never be broken especially when you mention all of Wayne Gretzky‘s offensive records.  Then think of 3 goals in 21 seconds, and would a coach even leave a player out there after 2 goals in such short time?

The best part of these two players is that they basically played with the Chicago Blackhawks for all of the 1940’s.  The sad part of the story for these two Chicago Blackhawks legends is that they never were able to get their names on the Stanley Cup during their great careers with the Blackhawks.
