Glenn Hall Sees Start Streak End

1962: The Chicago Black Hawks goalie doesn’t play in the team’s 3-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens. Hall started in a record 502 consecutive games before sitting out this game. He left a game against the Boston Bruins a few days earlier due to back issues.

Chicago wins behind backup goalie Dennis DeJordy’s 31 saves. DeJordy starts the next three games before Hall returns on Nov. 17. He enters the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1975.

Other Notable Events

1942: The New York Rangers get overtime-goals by Bryan Hextall Sr. and Lynn Patrick to beat Chicago, 5-3, in overtime. It’s the last overtime game played until 1983-84 when five-minute, sudden-death periods are introduced. Previous versions of overtime were a full 10-minute period.
