David Legwand Completes The Newly Formed Legwand Hat Trick

So you ask what is a Legwand Hat Trick.  Well, it would be a goal, an assist, and...a baby?  Legwand's wife, Lindsey Legwand went into labor earlier in the day and it was assumed by the Predators that Legwand would not make it for the game.  The baby was delivered by 5:30 and Legwand made it to the arena in time for warmups.  He then went on to score a shorthanded goal, an assist in regulation, and then the game winning goal in the shootout for the 4-3 win against the Columbus Blue Jackets.  Here is what Legwand had to say after the game:

"It's been interesting,'' Legwand said. "It was all a pretty last-minute thing. I didn't have much thinking to do. I just went out and played.''

Predators head coach had this to say about the situation as well:

"I talked to David about an hour-and-a-half before warm-up and he said his baby was on the way,'' Trotz said. "I texted him back and said, 'That's fantastic. I'll see you on Monday. We'll get the win tonight without you.'"He texted back about an hour later and said, '(The baby) is here and my wife says (I) better get to the game.'''

So the Predators win the game, but who should get the first star of the game.  Fans over at our Predators blog, On The Forecheck,  believe it should be Lindsey Legwand for delievering the baby on time.
