Artemi Panarin earned his first career hat-trick as a New York Ranger during Thursday's 6-3 victory against the Sharks. He also provided the secondary assist on Mika Zibanejad's third period power play goal as well.
Although the hat-trick did not occur at the Garden where the fans could shower him with hats all over the rink, it must have been a pretty exciting moment nonetheless. Panarin now has four goals and an assist on this West Coast trip. New York will continue their California tour with a date in Anaheim to take on the Ducks Saturday night.
