Hats for Mats: Brassard, Zuccarello conjure magic for Rangers

2 Comments

Considering the fact that he suffered a fractured skull, it’s sometimes scary to watch Mats Zuccarello on the ice.

It might be almost as frightening to try to stop his dangerous New York Rangers line, though.

Zuccarello collected a hat trick, representing all three Rangers goals in a 3-1 win against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Friday.

Derrick Brassard got the primary assist on all three tallies, while Rick Nash mopped up with the secondary helper on every goal.

All due respect to Nash’s contributions, but Brassard’s passes to Zuccarello were downright beautiful. Check out all three goals in the video above.
