NHL agrees: No hat trick for Capitals' Wideman

WASHINGTON (AP) - Dennis Wideman says he didn't deserve the hat trick. Turns out he was right.

The NHL on Saturday changed the scoring on the Washington Capitals defenseman's final goal in Friday night's 4-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Wideman said after the game that the puck went in the net off teammate Brooks Laich.

The league agrees. Laich now gets credit for the goal, with assists to Wideman and John Carlson.

It would have been Wideman's first career hat trick. The last Capitals defenseman to record a hat trick remains Sergei Gonchar in 2000.

Quote of the Day

I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
