Several Montreal Canadiens take rough justice on a lone Detroit Red Wing player whose team-mate is unable to move in and assist. The title is a turn on the recent colloquialism - a "Gordie Howe Hat Trick" - in which a player gets a goal, an assist and wins a fight in the same game.

As a Habs fan and creator of the installation, I have finessed it so that Rocket Richard gets to have his revenge.
