“This is a hat we found in Brad Marchand’s stall a week ago and I came in here after my interview on the bench and it was sitting in my stall. I have the honor and pleasure of wearing it here tonight after a hat trick. Everyone signed it too, even the trainers, so it’s special.”
Milan Lucic, referring to the stylish hat he was wearing during postgame interviews on Thursday night
