Can't Wait for November 20th: New York Rangers
On November 20th, the Minnesota Wild will square off against the New York Rangers at the Xcel Energy Center. This game will come with lots of anticipation, as this will mark the return of Marian Gaborik (barring injury) and Derek Boogaard. Last season, Gaborik did not play in the game at Minnesota because of an injury. Both players were fan favorites in Minnesota, for different reasons. Derek Boogaard was the enforcer that quickly became one of the NHL's most intimidating players. Marian Gaborik holds the record for most career goals and points in the franchise's history. Both left the team via free agency, one year apart.
