Marco Scandella, aptly nickname Marco Goal-o, set a career-high in goals (11) and points (23) this season, but four stand out in particular.
The Montreal native led all Wild defensemen with four game-winning goals this past season, two of which were “On The Marc” in overtime.
Scandella’s blast from the point was his first overtime goal of the season came against Central Division rivals, the Winnipeg Jets. The next came against another rival, Dallas Stars. Thomas Vanek fed Zach Parise a pass who quickly bounced it over to Scandella, who was waiting backdoor for the tip-in goal.
The goals led to some great Hockey Hugs presented by Gillette Children’s Speciality Healthcare.
