In the third period of the Wild’s Game 2 loss in Denver, coach Mike Yeo reunited the Zach Parise-Granlund-Jason Pominville line. Parise and Pominville assisted on Granlund’s Game 3 winner, and the three combined for 17 shots.
Pominville, Granlund’s linemate for most of the season, loves playing with him.
“He sees the ice really well, and I think our line just competes and works hard,” Pominville said. “As good as he is with the puck, he’s really good defensively. So most times we find a way to not spend a lot of time in our own zone. He can make plays, jump into holes, create a lot of things on his own.”
Granlund was just getting back in the swing of things during Games 1 and 2 after missing the final six regular-season games because of a head injury. The Avalanche challenged him physically, and he seemed tentative.
Monday, Granlund was anything but that. He courageously cut to the net often and was rewarded on the final play of the game.
“He deserves credit for that, for the quality of his play,” Roy said.
