Maple Leafs vs. Senators: Nazem Kadri notches second hat trick

This one was a bit easier.


If you know a Toronto Maple Leafs fan, give them a call. Talk them through the wave of emotions and thoughts they must be going through right now. The Leafs are probably going to make the playoffs and they might have a star-in-the-making tearing up the league for their team right now. This is unfamiliar territory for Toronto fans.

Nazem Kadri and Joffrey Lupul single-handedly destroyed the Ottawa Senators on Saturday. The pair has a combined 8 points and Kadri has registered his second career hat trick (a natural one, at that) in his first full season as a pro. Remember how sick his first one was? Wel, this one was a little easier. Kadri had two wide-open nets to take advantage of.

It's probably fair to say that Lupul and Kadri are one of the top two duos in the NHL right now. Is it also fair to say Kadri should be considered for the Hart Trophy?
