Tyler Seguin showed yet again why he’s a force to be reckon with in the National Hockey League.
The sophomore player, going into Saturday’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs with four goals and seven assists in 11 games, netted a hat trick.
It was his first of probably many more to come.
He scored them first to get the Bruins up 1-0 at 06:23 into the first period; then 34 seconds into the second period for the 2-0 lead; and then 15:01 into the second period to give Boston a 4-0 lead.
The Bruins went ahead 7-0 late into the third period.
This is the second time already this season the Bruins generated an onslaught of offence. The Leafs took a 6-2 loss on Oct. 20 in Boston.
The Maple Leafs entered the game at first place in the NHL, tied with the Chicago Blackhawks at 19 points.
