Offseason[edit]

Regular season[edit]

On December 11, 2003, Mark Bell scored just 15 seconds into the overtime period to give the Blackhawks a 4-3 home win over the Detroit Red Wings.[1] The Sabres' Derek Roy would match that mark in the overtime period on March 17, 2004 in a 4-3 Buffalo road win over the Atlanta Thrashers.[2] Both goals would prove to be the fastest overtime goals scored during the 2003-04 NHL regular season.[3]
