The Noon Number: Milestone Hat Trick

Bruce Bennett

A look at an "insane" coincidence that was nearly even crazier

400 - Number of career regular season games played by Troy Brouwer, Jakub Voracek and Wayne Simmonds, each of whom hit that milestone in the Caps/Flyers game on Sunday. As Simmonds noted:

"When they announced that Brouwer also had his 400th NHL game, I was thinking to myself, ‘this is crazy.’ It’s insane. I mean, to have two guys on one team do it together the same game is crazy enough, but another guy gets it in the same game? That’s incredible."

Even more incredible? Had Mikhail Grabovski not missed the game with the flu, he would have made it four.

And speaking of The 400 Club, Alex Ovechkin has 398 regular season goals, at present... let's keep hitting those milestones, shall we?
