Side Note:

Bobby Hull would go on to break Richard's record with his 27th hat-trick on Feb. 21st, 1971. So, Richard's record stood for a little over 13 years. Esposito scored his 29th hat-trick on March 24th, 1978, so Hull's record held for just over 7 years. Wayne Gretzky would score his 33rd hat-trick on January 26th, 1985 (just 12 days before Mike Bossy would score his 33rd) to break Phil's record which stood for nearly 7 years. Although neck-and-neck for three years, Mike Bossy would never jump ahead of Gretzky in all-time hat-tricks meaning no other player has been the career hat-trick leader since Gretzky broke Espo's record in 1985. In other words, he's held the record for just over 29 years. Wild.
