New York • Chris Kreider scored three goals, and Rick Nash added a goal and two assists as the New York Rangers spoiled the return of former coach John Tortorella by rolling to a 5-2 victory over his Vancouver Canucks on Saturday.

Kreider netted two in the first period for his first NHL multigoal game, and finished his hat trick by tipping in Anton Stralman's shot with his back to the net at 9:38 of the third. Kreider had scored only five goals — three this season — in his first 43 career games.

His effort brought a rain of hats onto the Madison Square Garden ice.

Nash and defenseman Michael Del Zotto connected in the second against starting goalie Roberto Luongo and backup Eddie Lack to turn the much-anticipated game into a rout.

Bruins 3, Blue Jackets 1 • In Boston, Milan Lucic scored a pair of goals and Patrice Bergeron added another, lifting the Bruins to victory.
