National Hockey League

Brandon Sutter records hat trick, Canucks rout Senators 7-1


In an arena devoid of fans, Sutter had only his teammates to celebrate his three-goal night with, but the lack of noise didn’t dull the moment.


Tanner Pearson had a goal and an assist, and Tyler Motte, Quinn Hughes and Olli Juolevi also scored for the Canucks.


Ottawa’s only goal came midway through the second period when Austin Watson scored off assists from Thomas Chabot and Mike Reilly.


“When you’re forechecking well and you’re reloading hard and guys are getting back through the middle, those are the things that kind of add up and deter the other team from creating those scoring chances.”


“So you’ve got to learn from and realize how good the National Hockey League is and how hard you have to work every shift if you want to win.


NOTES: Tim Stutzle returned to the Ottawa lineup after missing three games with a wrist injury.
