Throughout their history, the Blackhawks have shown tremendous resilience in the face of defeat. They have risen from the ashes better than most, often with great drama. Who could forget Bobby Hull’s historic goals, the NHL’s first hat trick, Tony Esposito’s shutouts, Glenn Hall’s ironman streak in net, and Bill Mosienko’s three goals in twenty-one seconds? Year after year, the Blackhawks have been blessed by a succession of star players—Charlie Gardiner, Pierre Pilote, Stan Mikita, Keith Magnuson, Denis Savard, Chris Chelios, and Tony Amonte, to name a few.
