The view from Minnesota - LA Kings Insider

Star Tribune

Mikael Granlund scores 12 seconds into OT, lifts Wild over Kings

“But despite a mishmash bunch of lines that included one forward playing his third game in three days and the team coming off its five-day bye, the Wild nobly rallied four times from one-goal deficits for the third time in franchise history during an exhilarating 5-4 overtime win.”

Postgame: Amid trades and mumps, Wild pulls out dramatic victory

“…in a 5-4 overtime win over Los Angeles, Granlund scored the fastest overtime goal in Wild history (12 seconds). It was Granlund’s 20th goal and his first career regular-season overtime winner… The win was the Wild’s 40th and gave Minnesota 86 points – one short of last year’s 82-game total in 60 games.”


Wild top Kings on spectacular Mikael Granlund goal in OT

“Hanzal, the presumed prize of Sunday’s deal, finished the night with a couple of shots on goal. White, meanwhile, instantly endeared himself to the Wild faithful — first with his flow, then with his show — scoring a goal and tallying an assist.”

Shorthanded Wild dethrone Kings in overtime

“The Wild wrapped up their franchise-record eight-game homestand with a 5-2-1 record. In their past 33 games since Dec. 13, they’ve scored four-plus goals 18 times. After losing 5-3 to Chicago before their bye… the Wild were given a gift from general manager Chuck Fletcher for their franchise-best record at this point in the season with the acquisition of the well-regarded Hanzal.”

Wild battle from behind to beat Kings in OT

“There were moments of brilliance for the Wild; Granlund’s winning goal, White’s deflection, and Schroeder’s goal were tasty, to say nothing of Nino. There were problems as well. The passing was not as crisp as it needed to be at times, and the Wild had trouble entering the zone smoothly, including on the power play.”
