Description: Eric Boulton scored three goals with a +3 in the Thrashers' 7-1 win over New Jersey on Saturday.
Insight: The hat trick was the first in Boulton's career, which spans back to the 2000-01 season. Don't view Saturday's game as a sign of things to come, although it was nice to see the Thrashers' tough guy have a great night offensively. He has seven points (4g-3a) and 19 penalty minutes in 28 games this season.
