During a 5-3 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs, Wideman became the first Capitals defenseman to record a hat trick* since Sergei Gonchar in 2000. Making Wideman's first ever trick even more special was the fact that all three goals came on the power play. He also added an assist for good measure as Washington has now won two in...
