Tage Thompson ties Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux after historic period

The Buffalo Sabres are visiting the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight and let's just say, that after the first 20, it's the Tage Thompson show.

In the first period, Thompson has 4 goals to go along with 1 assist for a total of 5 points in what has to be one of the most dominant performances in recent memory and there's still two thirds of the game to play. Take a look:

Thompson has been putting it all together this season and I think it's safe to say this performance has cemented him as a superstar in the league.

Columbus on the other hand, are looking rather rough as the season moves along. I guess signing Johnny Gaudreau didn't do as they would've hoped.

Thompson's 4 goals ties him for the single period record with Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and 15 other players. Could he challenge Darryl Sitter's all-time 10 point night record?
