As the Caps prepare for their final preseason game against the Bruins on Sunday, their prospects keep lighting the lamp at lower levels, headlined last night by Stefan Della Rovere's hat trick (and two assists) for OHL Barrie and blueliner Josh Godfrey's trick in the Hershey Bears preseason-ending blowout of Wilkes-Barre Scranton.
Here's John Walton on JGod's efforts:
[After Alexandre Giroux (two goals, two assists) scored to give the Bears a 4-0 second period lead,] Josh Godfrey then turned the rest of the period into his personal highlight reel, scoring twice on two shots at from the blue line. Godfrey’s first goal came at 9:49 of the second, with his second tally coming at 19:58 just prior to the end of the period. Both slapshots got past Pens goaltender Adam Berkhoel, and HERSHEY led 6-0 after two.
Godfrey finished off his hat trick in the third period with a goal just 1:22 in.
It looks like John Carlson and the London Knights may not be the only ones who are "going to score as much as [they] want."
