Perreault Nets First Career Hat-trick

Standard Spin: With Alexander Ovechkin suspended, Mathieu Perreault stepped up and filled the scoring void for the Caps, tallying three goals for the first hat-trick of his career Tuesday.  Before you go snatching him off the waiver wire though, note that Perreault had only 10 points in 29 games coming in, and this opportunity will only last so long.  

Oh, and at least Ovie is staying true to his mantra of not being a distraction during his suspension... here he is dishing out the old shaving cream pie to the face during Perreault's post-game interview. (Jan.25)
