For the second time in three games, Wayne Simmonds collected a Gordie Howe hat trick – at least one goal, assist and fight – as the Philadelphia Flyers beat the Winnipeg Jets 5-3. (He didn’t pull anyone’s hair, though.)
Here’s video of the feat:
Simmonds, 24, has been red-hot lately. He has seven points (three goals, four assists) in his last four contests.
That includes his impressive output against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday, when he recorded his first Gordie (that time two goals, an assist and fight) in Philly’s 6-5 victory. Here’s bonus video of that one:
Overall, Simmonds has gotten into four scuffles this season. When he’s not dropping the gloves, he’s been scoring, as he has 15 points in 17 games played.
