Tonight’s honor goes to Sergei Samsonov of the Carolina Hurricanes. Samsonov first assisted on Ray Whitney’s goal which would be the first of his hattrick. He then capitalized on a turnover by the Flames defense and was able to beat Miikka Kiprusoff with a wrist shot. It was Samsonov’s 14th of a season as the player shows flashes of his old self. The goal below is courtesy of the NHL.
