Bo played awesome and great in the faceoff circle.  He played like the Captain he is. Great Gordie Howe hat trick!

A Goal, an assist and a fight

Oh Captain my Captain!!!

I have often wondered why this accomplishment is named after Gordie Howe as he was not the 1st to do this nor did he accomplish this feat more than others. Howe only had 2 "Gordie Howe hat tricks" in his career and, to his credit, both were against the Leafs. He probably could have had more but nobody wanted to fight him so I guess there is that but the most in NHL history is Rick Tocchet with 18.

 

The best explanation I can find for it being named after Howe is:

 

In ice hockey, a Gordie Howe hat trick is a variation on the hat-trick, wherein a player scores a goal, records an assist and gets in a fight all in one game. It is named after Hall of Famer Gordie Howe, who is known as "Mr. Hockey", because he is considered the most well rounded hockey player of all time.

I believe it was because he often could, and did, make exciting plays, score exciting goals and drop the gloves against some seriously tough guys.

 

Though everyone seems to fixate on the number of times each has happened in the same game, very few players have been able to maintain the same level of overall scoring and physicality.

Also played head to head against the Bergeron line and that line didn't register a point with him on the ice (both Pastrnak goals were scored when Horvat wasn't on the ice). Bergeron didn't get a single point tonight as well.

Best game he has played all year.  His line dominated a pretty good team.

I thought Stech was going for one too, looks like he was trying to find a dance partner at one point.. 

 

how often do you see 2 GHH's in one game?

Bo always steps up for the games against Boston for whatever reason.   Almost makes you wonder if he was secretly in the lockerroom back in June 2011.

I mean M*rk M*ssier has a leadership award named after him so I’m guessing Accurate descriptions for hockey accomplishments/awards aren’t really necessary...

Hopefully this puts to rest the idea that Petey should have been captain. Y'all on crack for suggesting it. Even thinking it.

What I really noticed : Bo's line was shutting down the Boston top line so well, that they figured by getting him into the Box for 5 min. or more that would give Bergeron some breathing space. Didn't work out so well for them. I really dislike the Bruins and their dirty tricks:

- put our best shutdown defender in the box

- If that doesn't work, give him some stick in the face....

- give our goalie some stick in the eye....

- some one else got some stick in the face as well, i think stetcher?Virtenan?

 

and no penalties on these stick infractions. Makes one wonder, does it not?

 

I am just super stoked that the Nucks kicked their BUTT in spite of dirty tricks...
