Chicago's Bill Mosienko bagged the nhl's quickest hat trick in 21 seconds on March 23, 1952. But what is the team record for three goals? Almost two decades after Mosienko's feat, the Boston Bruins set the team version, scoring a trio of goals just one second faster than Mosienko managed it. The Bruins' three-goal outburst came in 20 seconds, as Johnny Bucyk at (4:50), Ed Westfall at (5:02) and Ted Green at (5:10) scored in rapid succession during the third period of an 8-3 win over Vancouver on February 25, 1971. More recently, Washington missed the Bruins' mark by one second, with a team hat trick in 21 seconds, to tie Mosienko and the Blackhawks' record. In this chapter, we focus on team spirit.
