It was a bad day at the office for goalie Sam LoPresti of the Chicago Black Hawks. Lo Presti was peppered with 83 shots and did his best to keep his team in the game, stopping 80 shots. The Boston Bruins win the game 3-2, but LoPresit’s superhuman effort was the story of the game. The 83 shots are a record for a regulation NHL game. Chicago managed 20 shots on Frank Brimsek, dropping to 16-22-6 on the season.
