Vanek's Trick Powers Sabres Past Bruins
Coming into tonight's Buffalo versus Boston game the primary focus was the potential physical play. Since the Sabres got bigger over the off season, with the additions of enforcer John Scott and agitator Steve Ott, many Sabres fans thought they would finally receive an answer for last season's Milan Lucic and Ryan Miller incident.
However, Sabres sniper, Thomas Vanek grabbed the spotlight and recorded a hat-trick and two assists in the Sabres' 7-4 win over the Bruins. This was Vanek's second five-point game of the season, and he now leads the NHL with 15 points in six games played.
Also Sabres captain, Jason Pominville and young star, Cody Hodgson both recorded a goal and two assists on the night. While Miller turned away 38 shots for his third win of the season.
Check out Vanek's hat-trick below.
