Patric Hornqvist had a pretty simple explanation for how he was able to score three goals in just 2:47 during the Pittsburgh Penguins’ 6-3 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday night, setting a franchise record for fastest hat trick. “The two last ones, they were lucky ones,” said Hornqvist when talking about his record-setting night, which also happened to come on free hat night at PPG Paints Arena. It also worked for Hornqvist and the Penguins and helped lift them to a much-needed win just when it once again looked like things were going to start slipping away from them.

Welcome to Anaheim: Sprong scores on first shot with Ducks

After being unable to consistently crack the lineup or get an extended look as a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Daniel Sprong wasted no time in making an immediate impact with his new team. Sprong scored on his first shot as a member of the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday night, giving them a 2-0 lead over the Chicago Blackhawks when he rocketed a bad angle shot just underneath the crossbar. Sprong is an intriguing gamble for the Ducks because he has a ton of raw offensive ability (and they need more players with that) but has never been able to really show it at the NHL level.
