Extra Skinny Points
More on Doan's Hat:
Shane Doan had recorded 38 2-goal games without scoring a hat trick. That matched the NHL record of Petr Sykora, who also had 38 before he completed a hat trick against the Isles in 2008.
Doan is the first Coyote to ever have a hat trick against the Isles. Two (original) Jets did it: Alex Zhamnov and Dale Hawerchuk. The Isles have never had a hat trick against the Coyotes; Bossy-Tonelli-Wood and Palffy all did it against the Jets.
Brad Richards is now the active NHL player with the most career goals without a hat trick: 235. (Thanks scoreticker)
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since January 21, 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
