Last night in Denver, the Minnesota Wild launched their 2015-16 season in grand fashion. The hosts Denver Avalanche raced to a 3 - 0 lead in the first period, but the Wild, led by a Zach Parise hat trick, pulled off a stunning comeback to win the game 5 to 4.

The term "hat trick" is used in hockey and soccer, and it refers to when a single player scores three goals in a single game. (The term originally came from cricket, where, in 1858, H.H. Stephenson took three wickets with three consecutive deliveries; fans presented Stephenson with a hat as a gift for his achievement.)

But scoring a hat trick is considered a bit of magic in the sporting world. Along those lines, there are a lot of songs that celebrate magic.
