WATCH: Cristian Techera nets hat trick to rescue Whitecaps vs. New England

They call him "The Bug" in Vancouver, and on Saturday he was certainly flying.

The New England Revolution led for most of the game, first up 2-0 and later 3-2 in front, but Cristian Techera rescued the Whitecaps with a well-taken hat trick to salvage a 3-3 draw on a wild afternoon at BC Place.

Techera's triple treat takes his season scoring total to five goals and two assists, while the final result marks the fourth consecutive draw for the mercurial Whitecaps.
