Here are this week’s nominees:
Goal 1: Patrice Bergeron completes hat trick vs. Carolina Hurricanes
Boston’s alternate captain accounted for two tallies in the team’s five-goal first-period explosion against the Hurricanes on Saturday, and it didn’t take him long to complete the hat trick. Bergeron scored just five minutes into the second period, marking his third geno of a four-goal night.
Goal 2: Brad Marchand’s snipe vs. New York Islanders
The Bruins and Islanders were locked in a back-and-forth affair this past Tuesday, but Marchand’s 16th goal of the season helped Boston create some distance. Marchand received a crisp pass from David Pastrnak and finished the sequence by picking the corner of the net, leaving Isles goalie Jaroslav Halak helplessly sprawled out.
Goal 3: Danton Heinen opens scoring vs. Islanders
Boston’s first goal of the game against New York appeared to leave Halak stunned. Just over eight minutes into the contest, Riley Nash won a face off in the Islanders’ zone and dished the puck to Heinen, who zipped a wrister into the bottom corner of the net for his 10th goal of the season.
