Continued: Burns finally earns his fighting stripes

"They must be. Every time you chip it in, you're getting bumped before you get it. We have to fight through this thing. It's definitely frustrating to get in on the forecheck."

A big target

Boogaard, scratched in Game 3, feels he was under an officiating microscope in Games 1 and 2. The 6-7, 254-pound winger was called for 16 minutes in penalties. Two gave Anaheim power plays, and one evened up a situation in which George Parros initiated a confrontation.

"They don't like players like myself, I don't think," Boogaard said of the officials. "It's just the way it is. In junior I was almost a man against boys. They are kind of treating me the same way here. I don't think it's fair, but I'm just going to have to adjust to it and do the best I can."

Lemaire said Saturday that it was difficult to play Boogaard if he was being targeted.

"He's still effective, but he could be more effective," Lemaire said. "He's probably the most disciplined guy I know."It's tough when guys are punching you in the head and I'm sitting in the box for nothing," Boogaard said.

Etc.

• Wild defenseman Petteri Nummelin, scratched in Games 1 and 2, replaced Kurtis Foster in the lineup and scored the only Wild goal.

• Wild winger Branko Radivojevic, skating with a visor after having his eye poked during a fight with Edmonton's Patrick Thoresen in the final week of the regular season, said he plans to wear one next season. "I go in front of the net, and you never know when you'll get a puck or a stick," Radivojevic said.

• Minnesota's major pro sports teams now have a seven-game losing streak in the postseason. The last victory came when the Vikings defeated the Packers in the wild-card round in January 2005. The Vikings lost the next week to Philadelphia. Next up was the Twins, swept in October 2006 by Oakland, and now there's the Wild.
