Nylander's 1st career hat trick highlights tense affair with Bruins
20-year-old chases Tuukka Rask out of his net
Even with fists flying and goals being scored in droves, William Nylander's big night could not be overshadowed Saturday at TD Garden.
The young Toronto Maple Leafs centreman recorded his first career hat trick to chase Tuukka Rask out of his net in front of a rowdy Boston crowd.

Three Toronto goals in less than two minutes turned up the heat for the Bruins and a pleasant exchange took place between Leafs' Matt Martin and Boston's Adam McQuaid.

While Boston came back to tie the game (more than once), it was ultimately Toronto that took home the 6-5 win.
What more could you ask of a Saturday night game?
