Thomas Vanek not only scored his first goal as a Montreal Canadien tonight, he also scored his first hat-trick for the team.

Vanek's treble helped to guide the Canadiens to a 6-3 victory over the Colorado Avalanche.

David Desharnais provided the assist for the first while Max Pacioretty was involved in the build up of Vanek's last two goals.

The Canadiens extended their winning streak to four with the win over Colorado and will now finish their two game home-stand against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Wednesday night.
