PHOTOS: Top Blackhawks moments prior to All-Star break
Let's take it back to the beginning...
As we recap some of our favorite moments from the Blackhawks' season so far, we're going to start with Day 1, when the Blackhawks topped the Stars, 3-2, in a shootout in their season opener. Always nice to kick things off with two points.
Ah, nothing like hearing Chelsea Dagger for the first time at the start of a new season. And it just so happens that Blackhawks fans heard a lot of it in the 6-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres in the home opener.
Marian Hossa plays his 1,000th game
Look at that focus. That is the face of a man who has played over 1,000 games. Hossa hit that milestone back on Nov. 2.
Brad Richards plays his 1,000th game
Richards hit his 1,000 game milestone back on Nov. 16 in his first season with the Blackhawks. The veteran center has recorded nine goals and 19 assists in 44 games with Chicago.
Defeating the defending champs
The Blackhawks closed out their annual Circus Trip on a high note this season, recording a 4-1 win over the defending champion Los Angeles Kings.
The final score wasn't what Blackhawks fans had hoped for, but the annual outdoor event against the Washington Capitals was still a pretty awesome game to watch on New Year's Day.
Teuvo mania hit Chicago on Jan. 2 as the Blackhawks recalled Teravainen from the AHL's Rockford IceHogs. It took the 20-year-old a little time to find his groove, but he went into the All-Star break on a high note, recording two goals and one assist in the Blackhawks' last four games.
Kane tallies his 200th goal
Patrick Kane hit a pretty great milestone as he tallied his 200th career NHL goal on Jan. 20. Fun Fact: Patrick Sharp has assists on Kane's 1st, 100th and 200th career goals.
Quenneville coaches his 500th game
Pretty awesome milestone for Coach Q, who coached his 500th game behind the Blackhawks' bench on Jan. 21.
