Boogaard Keeps Waiting To Score

from Michael Russo of the Star Tribune,

The next time Derek Boogaard scores a goal, the NHL should allow the game to be stopped for a ceremony.

The Hall of Fame should swoop in and collect Boogaard’s stick, gloves and skates. The beaten goaltender might want to consider early retirement.

And if the Wild bruiser’s next goal comes at Xcel Energy Center, like maybe tonight against the Vancouver Canucks, bring some plugs to protect your eardrums from rupturing. “It’ll be sick,” Boogaard said, chuckling. “Hopefully I do it here.”

In recent games, the Boogeyman has been flirting with career goal No. 3—and his first in almost four years. “I think it’s getting close,” right wing Cal Clutterbuck said. “Boogey was the first star of video this week, and he’s throwing no-look backhand passes in practice.

“I’m going to say he scores, hmmm ... before Christmas.”

Boogaard’s last goal was on Jan. 7, 2006, or about seven NHLPA administrations ago.
