How did Dan Boyle celebrate not being traded by the San Jose Sharks after weeks of intense speculation? By schooling the Norris Trophy front-runner and providing us with a goal of the year candidate:

That power play goal gave the Sharks a 2-0 lead, just under four minutes after Martin Havlat opened the scoring. It came on a 5-on-3, so Boyle had plenty of ice to work with, making Ryan Suter leave his ankles at the blue line for that beauty. Oh, he also made Niklas Backstrom look pretty silly, too.

As ESPN's John Buccigross Tweeted, Boyle is now the class president at the University of Danglefornia.
