This Day In Hockey History (12/27)

Comeback rallies happen all the time but usually not capped by a hat trick. “This Day” has one of those moments.  The early 90’s were still fairly a high flying time for the NHL where higher scores were common on a night to night basis.  Just think back to a time where goalies had to stand on their heads and there were actual 100 point scorers in the league.  Okay here is today’s moment from 19 years ago and a little video to go along with it.

 

 

December 27, 1992


Rookie Alexei Kovalev’s third goal of the game with 36 seconds left ended a four-goal rally in the final seven minutes and gave the Rangers a 6-5 win over Boston in New York. It was Kovalev’s first NHL hat trick.
