Black Hawks Come Back to Defeat Red Wings as Hull Scores Twice

Nov. 20, 1963 - The Chicago Black Hawks overcame a 2-0 deficit tonight with two goals by Bobby Hull and scores by Kenny Wharram, Elmer Vasko, and Red Hay to post a 5-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings before a surprising Wednesday throng of 14,795 at Chicago Stadium. The Hawks’ ninth straight triumph at home without a defeat this season — three short of their record unbeaten string — delighted the crowd. The victory also preserved their league lead over Montreal, who were 3-1 victors over the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight. For Detroit, it was the seventh loss in eight games away from home. Gordie Howe, the Detroit star who skated out tonight with the league’s scoring record goal mark of 545, tried Chicago goalie Glenn Hall 12 times, but all he got out of it was an assist on the first Red Wing goal by Ed Joyal. Hull’s two goals tonight were Nos. 195 and 196. Black Hawk defenseman Pierre Pilote suffered a broken nose in the last period.
