The hub of hockey will be taking a look at the top 10 Bruins regular season games of 2010-11, followed by the top ten Bruins playoff games of the 2010-11 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Today we take a look at No. 10: January 11, 2011 Ottawa Senators vs. Boston Bruins.
The Bruins scored early and scored often and Patrice Bergeron had a hat trick that occurred twice. Tim Thomas recorded his sixth shutout as the Bruins blanked the Senators 6-0.
In the second period the Bruins scored off a deflection, the goal was credited to Bergeron, his third of the game. The Bruins fans covered the Garden Ice as Bergeron celebrated his first career NHL hat trick, only for the goal to be taken away minutes later as the puck actually deflected off a Senators defenseman.
Bergeron would score again in the third, this time clear as day, and the remaining hats in the building came flying through the air.
It was the first hat rick of Bergeron’s career.
Bruins Goal Scorers: Bergeron-3, Brad Marchand, Tyler Seguin, Blake Wheeler.
Senators Goal Scorers: None
