Stat Line Of The Night — 1/20/12 — Paul Pierce
Stat Line Of The Night — 1/23/12 — Kyle Clifford
Kyle Clifford will likely never record three goals in a single game throughout his entire career, however, that doesn’t mean he’ll never record a hat-trick while playing in the NHL. The Los Angeles Kings enforcer proved that last night, as his goal, assist and fight gave him the Gordie Howe hat-trick.
Clifford got the fight out of the way early, as he and Zenon Konopka dropped the gloves just 2:51 into the game. Approximately 13 minutes later, he recorded an assist on the Kings’ first goal of the game, which came via a Willie Mitchell point shot. And just 11 minutes into the second period the Gordie Howe hat-trick was complete, as Clifford’s wrist shot beat Sens goalie Craig Anderson, giving the Kings the 2-0 lead.
They would add two more goals in the period, en route to the 4-1 victory. But it was Clifford who got them going, as he got involved early and earned our “Stat Line of the Night” for Monday, January 23, 2012.
