It’s tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that’s right on time. It’s tricky…it’s tricky. Tricky. Tricky. Tricky. -Run DMC
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Just a quick one. A did like that, did it like this, did it with a hockey stick one. No, sports fans, the juggernaut Washington Capitals did not win last night, but they did do something of note. Even though the Caps lost 6-5 in Ottawa, one night after their 14-game winning streak came to an end with a 6-5 overtime loss in Montreal, they managed a hat trick out of yet another player. Last night Alexander Semin scored three goals following hat tricks by Alex Ovechkin and Brooks Laich. How about that? How about this? That marks the first time that Washington has ever had players record hat tricks in each of three or more consecutive team games. It also marks the first time it’s happened since the Flames, back in 1992, tied the NHL record with individual hat tricks in four straight games. Back then, Sergei Makarov, Joe Nieuwendyk, Theoren Fleury and Gary Leeman turned the tricks. Pretty neat, huh?
Peace out homies. Six two and Even!
