Mikael Granlund's game-winning goal Monday night was an individual effort that you'll be seeing on Wild highlight videos for years to come. But it wasn't the first time he'd done that sort of thing.
Here's a look at the Game 3 game-winner:
Now, here's the jaw-dropping goal that Granlund scored for Finland in the 2011 International Ice Hockey federation tournament against Russia that brought him fame before he ever wore a Wild sweater.
Watch 'em a few times and then get back to what you were doing.
Arrests were made in Schenectady late Saturday and early Sunday when Union College students took to the streets to celebrate the school's NCAA hockey title.
The web site of Albany television station WNYT reported: "Hundreds of students flooded a city street, and several people were arrested, after the Union College men’s hockey team defeated Minnesota in the National Championship Game on Saturday. Police shut down a block of Union Avenue between Union Street and Gillespie Street as the crowd swarmed outside several off-campus houses. Many of the students were carrying open containers of beer. Some were throwing the containers at police."

John Millea, the former Star Tribune reporter and editor who now works as a media specialist for the Minnesota State High School League, tweeted this in response to the news that University of Massachusetts basketball player Derrick Gordon's announcement Wednesday that he is gay.
The tweet also makes reference to Michael Sam, the University of Missouri football player who is likely to be drafted next month by the NFL.
Here are the first half-dozen responses he received:
@MSHSLjohn If they can play they can play. Simple as that.— Matt H (@Superfan3000) April 9, 2014
@MSHSLjohn More interesting is how school boards and administration react to openly gay coaches when parent complains while at church.— John Nalan (@JohnNalan) April 9, 2014
@MSHSLjohn When the media starts broadcasting "news" about athletes publicly announcing they are straight, then I might care.— Tanya Pelletier (@tanya_pelletier) April 9, 2014
@MSHSLjohn It will take lots of courage, especially in out-state schools where local politics/ideology play an even bigger role.— Grant Becker (@GBeck10) April 9, 2014
We all know that Twins manager Ron Gardenhire doesn't call many people by their real names -- and when he does it's either because he works for them or doesn't much care for them.
Have you ever wondered what your Ron Gardenhire nickname would be?
Well, the folks at the Minneapolis design firm Little are here to help.

From this point on, Readsies, you're on your own. (Thanks for finding this @MckennaEwen)
