Captain of the Washington Capitals Alexander Ovechkin notched another hat trick, saving the game for the team, as the Capitals survived regular time against the Carolina Hurricanes after being down 4-1 and later beat the Carolina team 6-5 in a shootout.
"Like I said the last game when you get a hat trick, you don't get it every day", he stated.
The player also managed to equal his 2007 record, performing 13 red-hot-plays in a row.
