Trevor Moore of Thousand Oaks, California recorded a unique hat trick for the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday. The fifth-year left winger had all three goals for the Kings in a 3-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta. Moore is the first player this season to record a hat trick for a winning team, by scoring all of his team’s goals in the process.
Three Goals Against the Oilers
Moore recorded his first hat trick of his career on Wednesday. He scored a goal in each period. Moore opened the scoring from Philip Danault of Victoriaville, Quebec, and Viktor Arvidsson of Skelleftea, Sweden at 4:23 of the first period. That was followed by a goal from Sean Durzi of Mississauga, Ontario and Arvidsson at 17:12 of the second period. The second period goal turned out to be the game-winning goal and put the Kings up 2-1 at the time. Moore then recorded his hat trick into an empty net to close out the scoring with 53 seconds left in the third period. He scored from the neutral zone of the ice. Arvidsson meanwhile picked up his third assist.
Oilers could not get shots through
Los Angeles did an exceptional job in defending Oilers superstars Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. As a team, the Kings blocked 29 Oilers shots.
