Sharks' Evander Kane sets record with first period goal outburst
SAN JOSE - The Sharks had seven shots on goal in the first period of their game against the Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday night. Three of them resulted in goals by Evander Kane, setting a team record.
Kane scored the game's opening goal at even strength at the 8:36 mark of the first. After Carolina defenseman Dougie Hamilton tied the game at the 10:46 mark, Kane scored twice in a span of 2 minutes and:24 seconds, with both coming on the power play.
The Sharks retook the lead at the 17:19 mark. Brent Burns fired a shot toward the net that hit a body in front, Kane was right there to pick up the loose puck and fire it past Hurricanes goalie James Reimer for his third goal of the season.
Just six seconds after another Sharks power play began, Kane, stationed at the side of the net, redirected a shot from Burns from a sharp angle past Reimer with 17 seconds left in the first period.
According to statistician Darin Stephens, Kane's hat trick is the first in franchise history to occur before the end of the first period.
