Artemi Panarin, Artem Anisimov celebrate Panarin's first hat trick

The Blackhawks' Russians both took to Instagram, and they look great.

Artem Anisimov has played 472 NHL games, but he's never scored a hat trick. It took Artemi Panarin 59 NHL games to get his first.

Of course, Panarin has the puck - and it's a set he'll probably be keeping for a while:

But Anisimov, Panarin's regular center who, this time around, didn't assist on any of his hat trick goals - has joined in on the congratulations as well, via his own Instagram.

Mostly, I just want to say how much I love this picture. It has such a "cool guys don't look back at explosions" vibe - the Chicago Blackhawks' Russian duo, both newcomers to the team this season, paying huge dividends for them this year.
