FACEBOOK 5 TOP PLAY: MARLEAU'S HAT TRICK VS COLORADO - NOVEMBER 20, 2011

On San Jose's second night of back-to-back games this weekend, Patrick Marleau scored three times as the Sharks beat the Avalanche 4-1. That was Marleau's fourth career regular season hat trick. He has also accomplished this feat three other times in the playoffs. Marleau ranks second in team history behind only Jonathan Cheechoo who recorded nine total hat tricks with San Jose.

Some other notable hat tricks include Joe Thornton's in 2008 and Owen Nolan's in 1995. Thornton's hat trick on March 25, 2008 vs Phoenix was the only time in franchise history when all three hat trick goals were scored in a single period. Nolan's hatty on Dec. 19, 1995 at Anaheim was the only time a Sharks player has scored four goals in a single game.
