Shea Weber ruins own-goal jokes with hat trick

3 Comments

Brad Richards‘ first goal of the 2015-16 season is a clip that probably would have burned Shea Weber for some time … if Weber didn’t bounce back so quickly, and forcefully.

(You can watch that accidental bounce off of Weber’s skate in the video of Richards’ goal above.)

The hard-hitting, hard-shooting Nashville Predators defenseman answered that frustrating moment with the first hat trick by a blueliner in Preds’ franchise history.

Jeez, Shea, at least give us a little time to make fun of you first …

Update: Weber became the first Predators defenseman to score a hat trick.

Despite that hat trick, the Red Wings managed to beat the Predators 5-4 in OT.
