Mike Richards gets a Gordie Howe hat trick in Game 3

May 4, 2012, 8:02 AM EDT

It wasn’t long before frustrations boiled over in Thursday’s game between the St. Louis Blues and Los Angeles Kings. Just 6:00 minutes into the contest, Mike Richards and Jamie Langenbrunner decided to duel. You can watch the fight below:

Richards also received a slashing penalty to put the St. Louis Blues on the power play. However, the Blues didn’t take advantage of that opportunity and Richards ended up scoring a goal and an assist to complete the Gordie Howe hat trick.

Richards has been fantastic in the Kings’ second round series and he’s one of the big reasons that they now have a 3-0 series lead over the St. Louis Blues.

        Wait for it. He’ll be hoisting the Cup while the reporters ask Holmgren how much help Schenn was in trying and failing to save the Flyers from the Devils.
