Last night we saw the ever rare grand slam of hat tricks around the NHL. Tomas Fleischmann netted three against Chicago, Nicklas Lidstrom earned his first career hat trick against St. Louis, while Buffalo’s Drew Stafford and Vancouver’s Ryan Kesler each scored all their team’s goals in wins over Boston and Columbus.

If it seems like there’s been a lot of players getting hat tricks this year, you’d be right as more than 35 players have each done the deed this season. To show our appreciation for the gratuitous show of offense, we give to you videos of all four of last night’s dynamic offensive play which includes seeing an overtime game-winner courtesy of Ryan Kesler.
