March 4th, 2010 by Eric Hornick Leave a reply »
Blake Comeau had never had a multi-goal game in his first 151 NHL games.  One game after he scored twice against Ottawa, Comeau recorded the first hat trick of his career as the Isles defeated the Blackhawks 5-3.

On to the trick:

1. Dwayne Roloson made 41 saves, including twenty in the first period as he held the Isles in the game.

Brian Campbell, who had six first period shots, and Patrick Kane scored in the session for the Hawks, sandwiching Comeau's first goal.

2. The game changed in the second period as the Isles scored twice in 25 seconds.  Comeau tied the game at 2:27 and Jon Sim was credited with the lead goal at 2:52.  Sim's goal was enough to chase Hawk starter Antti Niemi after allowing three goals on 12 shots.

Richard Park beat Cristobal Huet at 7:06 and Comeau completed his trick with 18 seconds to play in the middle session.

3. Dustin Byfuglien missed half of the third period with an injury but came back with 4:17 to play to score a power play goal.  The Hawks would get no closer, but Byfuglien's goal made Huet, not Niemi, the losing goaltender.
