THIS DATE IN PENGUINS HISTORY – February 21, 2000

11121436874_3689d78397_oRobert Dome made a little history for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins 16 years ago today by netting the first hat trick in team history.  His three-goal outing helped the Penguins post a 5-4 win over the Philadelphia Phantoms at the Spectrum.

Dome opened the scoring at 6:05 of the first period, and made it a 2-0 game 1:15 later.  It took just another 27 seconds before the Penguins found themselves with a 3-0 lead courtesy of a Greg Crozier goal that chased Neil Little from the Philadelphia crease.

Todd White scored late in the first period for the Phantoms, and Mark Greig beat Ryan Bach 1:25 into the second frame to cut the lead to one goal.

Martin Sonnenberg and Mike Maneluk traded goals before the 5:00 mark of the second period to make it 4-3.

Dome capped the hat trick at 12:46 with what proved to be the eventual game-winner, as Jeff Tory finished off the day’s scoring at 15:05 of the second.

Bach made 21 saves on to pick up the win for the Penguins, while Bujar Amidovski took the loss in relief of Little, allowing two goals on 16 shots.
