No More Bye Week Worries for Wild Fans
So much for the bye week slump. Mikael Granlund scored just 12 seconds into overtime as the Minnesota Wild beat the Los Angeles Kings 5-4 on Monday.
Granlund showed off some great moves and slick stick handling on the play which gave the Wild its only lead of the night. The new guy, forward Ryan White had a goal and an assist in his Wild debut as Minnesota (40-14-6) won for the third time in four games. Jason Zucker, Nino Niederreiter and Jordan Schroeder also scored. Goalie Devan Dubnyk had 26 saves.
Minnesota was playing without wingers Zach Parise and Jason Pominville, who were diagnosed with mumps. Didn't that happen last year?
Minnesota travels to Winnipeg tonight.
