Semin Celebrates the Hat Trick

WASHINGTON, DC – October 23, 2010:  Washington Capitals forward Alexander Semin (#28) celebrates scoring his third goal of the night with Brooks Laich (#21) against the Atlanta Thrashers during their NHL ice hockey game at Verizon Center.

Number one NBA draft pick John Wall was a guest in Ted Leonsis’ box last night to watch Alex Semin score three and notch his first hat trick of the 2010-11 season last night against the Atlanta Thrashers.  In a game that was in doubt until Tomas Fleischmann scored the game winner in overtime, Alex Semin was the star of the show with three goals, two coming off assists from AHL call up Matthieu Perrault.  Mike Knuble put on another penalty killing clinic in the third period, at one point tying up all five Thrashers skaters deep in their own end during a Thrashers power play.  The Capitals power play looked better, but kept sputtering despite the partial return of Mike Green.  Alex Ovechkin was very quiet playing in his third consecutive game without any points…the first time he has done that since 2008, but he did throw a nice check that sent Thrashers’ forward Andrew Ladd head over heels into the Thrashers bench.
