1930 - Boston became the first team in NHL history to score 100 goals in a season, in a 5-1 win over Chicago, at Boston Garden. Cooney Weiland scored the Bruins' 100th goal of the season in their 26th game of the year.

2001 - Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Blackhawks 4-0 in the first-ever NHL game featuring two European trained coaches. Ivan Hlinka was behind the bench for the Penguins, and Alpo Suhonen was the man behind the bench for the Blackhawks.

2004 - Minnesota Wild set an NHL record for two fastest goals, when Jim Dowd and Richard Park scored goals just three seconds apart in the final 15 seconds of the game, in a 4-2 win over the visiting Blackhawks.
