It was back-to-back hat tricks in Toronto after Natalie Spooner scored three on Boston in Toronto's 5-3 win over PWHL Boston.

Toronto improved to 4-1-0-5 through 10 games, clawing their way back out of the basement after a PDO boulder was dropped on them to start the season. The win puts them ahead of New York and Boston on points percentage, up into fourth in the PWHL. They're back!

Lauriane Rougeau (signed after Montreal didn't sign her) made a brilliant pass up the middle to split the D on Spooner's first goal before pulling off a coast-to-coast move.

JAILBREAK! Spooner took advantage of an amazing skill play from Sarah Nurse to bury the shorthanded goal, and taking the power play off the board for Boston in the process. Nurse finished the game with a goal and an assist and was the second star of the game.

Spooner finished the hat trick from her office. Somehow she makes it look just as easy with a goalie in net.

Queen of Toronto. Spooner leads Toronto with 10 goals, including seven (!!!) in her last three (!!!) games. She's also eyes-on for the Cy Young trophy as she's only got one assist. Considering she leads the team with 42 shots in 10 games, Spooner's genuinely put her team on her back.

Goals, assists, points, plus/minus, shots. Her stat line is insane!

And while we're here, let's pour one out for Blayre Turnbull who's second in shots with 30 but only has one goal to show for her. Leslie and Compher have 19 and 17 shots each and still haven't scored this season. Nat needs to share some of her magic.

Moving onto the Leafs, there's a bug going around the locker room that's affected Nylander too. He missed practice along with Marner and Tavares yesterday.
