Hat Tricks both ways

As mentioned on Sunday's telecast, it was the first time that
there have been hat tricks for both teams in an Islander-Ranger
game. (Neither team has ever had a two hat trick game against
the other)

I believe that this is the eighth time that both teams have had
hat tricks in games involving the Isles and that they are now
4-2-2 in such games:

Denis Potvin & Darryl Sittler (Isles 7 - Toronto 10) 1978

Butch Goring & Real Cloutier (Isles 9 - Quebec 6) 1980

Bryan Trottier & Ken Houston (Isles 6 - Caps 3) 1982

Dave Gagner & Pat LaFontaine (Isles 8 - North Stars 6) 1989.

Derek King & Mario Lemieux (Isles 6 - Penguins 7) 1991.

Ray Ferraro & Brett Hull (Isles 7 - St. Louis 7) 1991

Derek King & Sylvain Turgeon (Isles 5 - Ottawa 5) 1993.

Viktor Kozlov & Brendan Shanahan (Isles 7 - Rangers 4) 2006.
