The history making event in this game is Ryan Nugent-Hopkins the 18 year old 1st round overall 1st draft pick scored his first career hat trick. Nugent-Hopkins was the only Oiler to get a goal last night! The really fun part of watching this game unfold is that Nugent-Hopkins was skating in a line with Taylor Hall (19 years old) and Jordan Eberle (21 years old). You could call this line "the kids line" and they were on fire last night. Hall and Eberle were both credited with a few assists. I guess getting the 1st round draft picks for a few years pays off! Nugent-Hopkins broke Wayne Gretzky's record! This is a big deal folks. Nugent-Hopkins got his 1st NHL hat trick in 3 NHL games. Gretzky didn't get his 1st hat trick til February 1980, 5 months into the season.
Winnipeg Jets fans don't fret. The Jets are finding their groove. They are playing strong and are going to win soon. They played the former Jets the Pheonix Coyotes last night. The final 4-1. Andrew Ladd scoring the lone goal for the Jets. But a fact about the Jets? This has happened before. The Jets actually hold the record for the longest losing streak. In 1980-81 it was the Jets second year in the NHL and they lost 30 games straight. They ended the season with a 9-57-14 record. I don't see that happening again. GO JETS!
