Florida Panthers forward Noel Acciari notched his first career hat trick Monday against the Ottawa Senators. It didn’t take him long to get his second one.
He recorded it in his next game, Friday against the Dallas Stars. The best part? It took him all of about four minutes.

Acciari’s first goal came 7:26 into the second period. With Florida already leading 4-1, Acciari picked up a pass from Vincent Trocheck and one-timed it past Stars goalie Ben Bishop from the slot.
He struck again just 32 seconds later, finishing off a tic-tac-toe passing play from Trocheck and Jonathan Huberdeau.
His final goal for the natural hatty came on a penalty shot at 11:25 of the second after he drew a call while the Panthers were short-handed. He pump-faked before sliding the puck five-hole past Anton Khudobin, who had come on in relief of Bishop, to make it 7-1, Florida.
The 28-year-old Johnston, R.I., native now has 11 goals and 13 points in 31 games this season after his back-to-back hat tricks.
