Brad Marchand Captures ‘Ho Ho Ho Hat Trick’ Honors With Five-Point Holiday Send-Off

On a night when Benoit Pouliot scored one of the best goals you'll see all year, Brad Marchand managed to find a way to steal the spotlight.

Marchand had five points and three goals to record his first career hat trick and close out the Florida Panthers in style with a 8-0 romp at the TD Garden.

Tuukka Rask notched his second straight shutout, Pouliot had his highlight-reel goal and just about every Bruins player had his way with the injury-ravaged Panthers in a game that turned in the B's favor early.

NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is in a giving spirit this holiday season so he's awarding Marchand our "Ho Ho Ho Hat Trick" player of the game award. Enjoy those Santa hats, Brad.
