Jonathan Cheechoo of the San Jose Sharks and Ryan Smyth of the Edmonton Oilers BOTH score natural hat tricks in tonight’s game. Oilers score FIVE unanswered goals to win 6-4.
Symth’s hat trick marks the FASTEST a single player on the Oilers has scored three goals in a row. Three goals in two minutes and one second. Knocking…wait a sec…you know…WAYNE GRETZKY off of that 1981 record. Not like he doesn’t have a shitload of other records, eh?
Smyth’s third goal was also his 500th NHL point.
And people wonder why I picked Smyth for my fantasy team.
Now, I’m not going to talk about the Flyers. It’s…ummm…a REBUILDING YEAR. Yeah, that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.
BUT…funny thing heard Wednesday night in their game against the Canadiens.
Gord Miller calling the Flyers lumbering defenseman Derian Hatcher “Frakenhatcher”.
I lost my shit over that one.
