Joey Anderson scored what has been described as a Mario Lemieux Hat Trick last night in a Toronto Marlies win over the Springfield Falcons. What is a Mario Lemieux Hat Trick? Unofficially, it’s when you can score a power play goal, shorthanded goal, and even strength goal all in the same game. And that’s exactly what Joey Anderson did.

First the shorty, probably his best goal of the night came off a great move by Brett Seney.

Next, he got the power play goal out of the way. Joey Duszak floated a shot through the slot for Anderson to tip, which he did. This ended up being the game-winning goal. Josh Ho-Sang got the secondary assist.

And the even strength goal to tie it all together. Only three minutes (and an intermission) after his second goal, Anderson banged home the rebound from a Antti Suomela shot from the slot. Jack Kopacka was the one behind the net who gave Suomela that great pass.

This hat trick isn’t rare, you tend to see someone in the NHL or other leagues scoring them about once a year. Carter Verhaeghe scored one last year!

On that second link, here’s something to keep an eye out for. Another month in the NHL, another scandal.

“In recent weeks there has been widespread speculation of a makeover at the top of the Senators organization. As well, multiple sources have confirmed that an investigative media story is in the works related to the way in which the club conducts its business at the highest levels.”

And the Canucks are not done with their chaos, as there obviously needs to be a de-build before there’s a management re-build.

And finally, John Tortorella is not worth listening to.
