The last player to do so was Bryan Trottier -- against the Penguins, Rangers and Penguins on January 21, 24 and 26, 1982.
Unlike Satan's goals, Trottier was credited with the winner in three blowouts (6-1, 6-1 and 9-2). The games were the first three of the Islanders' 15-game winning streak -- and the first three in the "career" of a certain statistician. :)
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of FSN statistician Eric Hornick. Eric, who has worked the Stanley Cup Finals four times, celebrated his 25th anniversary as the statistician on Islander home telecasts on January 21, 2007. Often referred to on-air as an actuary, he is one of 3,044 Fellows of the Casualty Actuarial Society and is the President of the Casualty Actuaries of Greater NY. You can find him in the "Best Seat in the House", about six feet to Howie and Billy's left, at most Islander home games. For more on the actuarial profession, visit www.beanactuary.org
