On Friday night, Max Pacioretty showed the hockey world yet again why he is indeed one of the best goal scorers in the league. He torched Craig Anderson 3 times for his 4th career hat trick and 3rd of the season, as the Montreal Canadiens came back from a 3-0 deficit early to blow out the Ottawa Senators 7-4.
It was a 5 point effort for the gifted sniper, and the 7th time this season that the New Canaan, CT native recorded at least 3 points. The newly formed trio of Pacioretty-Desharnais-Vanek has been lights out in the past 3 weeks and opponents have had very little success shutting the explosive line down.
The Canadiens are back in action Saturday night as they take on Detroit at home. It`ll be interesting to see if the Red Wings can keep this gifted goal scorer off of the score sheet!
