Anyway, here is today's gem from nine years ago and what a nice stage to do it on, New York City. The video comes first.

Eric Daze scored his 5th career hat trick, defenseman Nathan Dempsey had a career-high four assists and Jocelyn Thibault made 46 saves in the Blackhawks 4-3 win against the Rangers at New York.
