Phil Kessel’s hat trick vs. Slovenia


Phil Kessel has been the best hockey player on the planet since the start of 2014, leading the NHL (28pts) and now the Olympics in points. Here’s his latest divine revelation: A natural hat trick in Sunday’s game versus Slovenia.

That first move = Wow. The cross-crease goal off of Joe Pavelski’s pass (hard to tell from the highlights) was batted in from knee high level.

How good does it feel that a Toronto Maple Leaf is the talk of the hockey world?

Praise be to The Phil.
