Nazem Kadri recorded his second hat-trick this season and moved up to sixth in the NHL in points as the Leafs went on to beat the Ottawa Senators 4-0 last night. What a breakout year it's been for Kadri.
In the post-game show on CBC, Don Cherry and Ron MacLean even decided to bring Kadri, Orr and McLaren (who had an unbelievable fight last night), backstage. After praising the three Leafs forwards, Cherry gave Nazem Kadri a kiss. It was much like the infamous kiss Cherry gave to Doug Gilmour.
I wonder if this will be played over and over again in the future just like Gilmour's...
Granted, Doug Gilmour got the lips while Nazem Kadri got the cheek. Gives you something to strive for, kid. - Puck Daddy
The magic number in the Eastern Conference this year to reach the playoffs is 53 points. That would mean the Leafs would just need nine more points over the next 12 games to end the eight year playoff drought.
