Tavares -- scoring more...and more important ... goals

Of Tavares' 18 goals this season, 14 have come with the scored tied or with the
Isles leading or trailing by 1 goal.
Tavares scored 24 goals in 82 games last season, but only 14 came with the
scored tied or with the Isles leading or trailing by 1 goal.

All three goals that he scored on Saturday met the criteria, as he scored with
the Isles trailing 1-0, tied 1-1 and leading 2-1.
All three goals that he scored in his previous hat trick (at Florida at October
23) came with the Isles trailing by a goal.
