Due to a scoring change involving the Pittsburgh Penguins’ opening goal, Kunitz has now been credited with an incredible four goals in a single contest, according to the Penguins’ official website.
The goal was initially given to defenseman Paul Martin, but it was later determined that Chris Kunitz redirected it.

Kunitz’s four-goal game is something that Sidney Crosby, James Neal, and Evgeni Malkin have never accomplished in a Penguins’ uniform. The last Pittsburgh player to find the back of the net four times in a single game was Jaromir Jagr on Oct. 14, 2000.
Of course, Kunitz not only scored four goals, but he did so on the road. The last time that happened for Pittsburgh was on Jan. 26, 1997 when Mario Lemieux victimized the Montreal Canadiens.
