Video: Wings’ Abdelkader records the hat trick versus the Ducks

Mar 23, 2013, 1:16 AM EDT

Detroit Red Wings’ winger Justin Abdelkader has suddenly found a scoring touch, after recording the hat trick in a 5-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks.

The Ducks came into the game with points in each of their last 12 games, and were two days removed from a thrilling third-period comeback win over the Chicago Blackhawks in a battle of the top two teams in the Western Conference.

Abdelkader, who also had an assist to make it a four-point night Friday, now has five goals in his past three games.

Prior to March 16 against the Vancouver Canucks, Abdelkader had found the back of the net just once in the previous 28 regular season games.

    Very nice Justin… keep up this kind of effort!

    Great game on all fronts for the Wings… for a very schizo year.

    They can skate with… and beat the best… but need to keep it together.

    GO RED WINGS!
