Entering Saturday's game Shane Doan of the Phoenix Coyotes had played 1,160 games in his NHL career. Always an underrated player, mainly due to the market he plays in and the fact he's been hidden on a team that hasn't had much postseason success, he has put together an excellent career, scoring over 300 goals during his 16 seasons in the NHL.
One thing he had never done before Saturday? Record a hat trick.
Well, he can now cross that off the list as he netted the first one of his career in a 5-1 rout of the New York Islanders. But it's not so much the fact that he scored three goals in one game for the first time in his career, it's how he ended up completing the trick -- he scored his third goal with just 0.1 seconds remaining on the clock.
Nice timing. And what a way to make it happen.
