This mural honors the Hall of Fame hockey player and Winnipeg native who scored the fastest hat trick in NHL history with three goals in 21 seconds on March 23, 1952. Mosienko played 14 seasons with the Chicago Black Hawks from 1941-55.

On that fateful day, Chicago was trailing the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden by a score of 6-2 in the third period. After Mosienko scored a goal 6:09 into the period, his center, Gus Bodnar, won consecutive faceoffs which led to Mosienko's second and third goals at 6:20 and 6:30. Remarkably, Bodnar won another faceoff and fed the puck to Bill, who rang a potential fourth quick goal off of the goal post. The hat trick spurred the Hawks to come back to win 7-6.

The previous hat trick time record was 64 seconds in 1938 by Carl Liscombe. The closest anyone has come to Mosienko's 60+ year-old record was Jean Beliveau's 44 second trick in 1955.

Unfortunately, Google Street View's face-blurring feature makes this scene harder to enjoy. The more info link below provides a good photo of the painting.
