Black Hawks Drop Canadiens, 7-3, in Chicago

Nov. 24, 1963 - The Black Hawks scored 4 times in the first period tonight and defeated the Montreal Canadiens, 7-3, in Chicago. The NHL victory extended Chicago’s win streak to 5 games and 10 in a row at home. The victory was the third for the Hawks over the Canadiens and it increased Chicago’s first-place lead over the Toronto Maple Leafs to four-and-a-half games. The crowd of 16,016 witnessed the rough penalty-ridden game after observing a minute of silent mourning for the death of President Kennedy. Mezzanine and balcony seats were filled to capacity, but many box seats were vacant. Stan Mikita and Ab McDonald paced Chicago with 2 goals each, and Bobby Hull was credited with 2 assists to increase his league-leading total to 31 points. Mikita also assisted on two goals.
