#13 Bondra five goal game

On Feb. 5, 1994, Peter Bondra that not even Alex Ovechkin has done yet. He lit the lamp five times in the Capital Centre against the Tampa Bay Lightning with ease. His first goal was a turnaround snipe on the face off circle.

The second goal was way too easy as Bondra not only beat the goaltender but got him out of the trapezoid. Easy shot that even I could make in a beer league game. I just need to learn how to ice skate.

Then it was another one from a sharp angle to complete a hat trick. This is what the kids who weren’t alive to see Bondra play would call tuff. It’s the kind of goal I can make in NHL on Xbox. He wasn’t done.

Bondra had four goals in the first period with a breakaway that made even a Pittsburgh Penguins fan in the video applaud. The fifth goal 30 seconds into the second period was a slam dunk.

I had to include Bondra in this list so I figured why not put his best game on here.
