Hey, if it makes the Los Angeles Kings feel any better, at least they shut out Timo Meier during the third period. In the previous two periods, Timo Meier set a new all-time San Jose Sharks record by scoring a whopping five goals.

While Meier became one of five Sharks to score at least four goals, he’s the first to record five.

Peruse some quick facts and stats about Timo Meier scoring five (5) goals to set that new Sharks record:

  • ESPN Sports & Info notes that Meier is the first player to score five goals within two periods since Capitals great Peter Bondra pulled that off in 1994.

  • According to Sportsnet Stats, Meier and Bondra rank among sixth players to score five goals in the first two periods of a game since 1967.
