Video: Granlund finishes off pretty play to open up Wild lead

May 7, 2014, 12:01 AM EDT

It was a big third period for the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday, with Mikael Granlund leading the way.

The 22-year-old Granlund scored twice in the final 20 minutes to help the Wild prevail with a 4-0 win over the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 3 of this second-round series. His first of the night was a beauty, as he finished off a pretty passing play by burying a backhander past Corey Crawford on the glove side.

    Nice goal from Granny…but the only real exceptional thing on that play was the perfect back pass from Pominville that created it…

      No everything was perfect. granny did make a nice goal but it wouldn’t have happened without the pass.

      Pominville is our greatest asset imo

        I agree. The Wild currently market Parise, Koivu and Suter as the studs but all things considered–Pommer is the best all-around player on the team. Like with the Sabres, he’ll probably be soon wearing the *C*

    And Haula was a 7th round draft pick. . . . . .

    With Haulas penalty kill ability he is a all around better player than McKinnon !! That’s right skol wild :-))

      Thats a bold statement.

      Haula has been a pleasant surprise–but you really should cut back on the rope smoking, son…
