Dustin Byfuglien's hat trick took less than 6 minutes to complete, with the final goal looking like an replay coming just 16 seconds after the previous one: a power-play score with assists from Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews. The Blackhawks, of course, took the game from Phoeix, 6-1. On other NHL rinks:
