Jets’ Patrik Laine posts NHL’s first five-goal game since 2011

Patrik Laine becomes the first player to score five goals in a game since 2011 and records his third hat trick of the month.

“Not one, not two, not three, not four, …”

Infamous words from LeBron James, but it’s Winnipeg Jets forward Patrik Laine who’s taken those words to heart by scoring five goals against the St. Louis Blues on Saturday night.

It marks just the third time since the 1997-98 season that a player has accomplished the feat, with Johan Franzen having done so for the Detroit Red Wings on Feb. 2, 2011 in Ottawa and Marian Gaborik also notching the same number as a member of the Minnesota Wild against the New York Rangers.

The Finnish star came into this game with 14 goals and 17 points through 21 games and now sits just one shy of 100 goals for his career.
