Brown’s unusual hat trick

For those who aren’t aware of the Elias Sports Bureau, they do an amazing job of finding statistical notes on players and teams, on very short notice. I have no idea how they do it, bu they’re good.

Elias came up with this note (on ESPN.com) on Dustin Brown’s hat trick last night:

“Brown’s first two goals came on L.A. power plays and his third goal was scored while the Kings were shorthanded. He’s the third player in Kings history to record a hat trick with at least one power play goal and one shorthanded goal but no even-strength tallies. The first two were Bernie Nicholls in April 1989 and Glen Murray in April 1998. Like Brown, they each scored two power play goals and one shorthanded goal.”
