Wow. Fadden obviously saw the love Lightning Swedish prospect Johan Harju was getting for his 4-goal game a week or two ago and wanted some of it for himself. Well done, sir. Fadden scored three in the second period and again half way through the third. Two of his goals were on the power play. Unofficially, Fadden has been named First Star six times this year.
