Oilers Update - Taylor Hall Hat Trick. Oh I remember that!

T.G.I.F!!!!  That's right.  It's time for "Oh I remember that!"

Today, our trip down memory lane will be a short one.  On February 19th 2011 the Edmonton Oilers were down by 2 goals against the now defunct Atlanta Thrashers after two periods.  

Early in the 3rd the Oilers were granted a 4 on 3 man advantage when rookie Taylor Hall decided to play magician by scoring his first NHL "natural" Hat Trick to put the Oilers ahead 4-3.  Fellow Oiler  Ales Hemsky, then provided 5th and final goal with an empty-netter.

What was absolutely magical about the young mans heroics was that all three goals all happened on the power-play.
