The Stat Line Of The Night – 4/03/09 – Jeff Carter
Total Pro Sports – On Wednesday night the Philadelphia Flyers travelled to Toronto and lost to the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2 in the first game of a home and home. On Friday night the Philadelphia Flyers came out flying, taking an early 6-0 lead and never looked back winning the game 8-5.
The high scoring affair was lead by Philadelphia Flyers forward Jeff Carter who scored his first career hat trick and added 1 assist on his 4 point night, making him “The Stat Line Of The Night” for Friday April 3rd, 2009.
Carter’s first NHL hat trick gave him 44 goals. Only Washington’s Alex Ovechkin has more this season.
“I’ve had a lot of two-goal games. I’m just happy to get it out of the way,” Carter said of his hat trick.
Hopefully he can continue on this hot pace and score 50 for the first time in his career.
