Granlund scored a power-play goal on three shots, served four PIM and went minus-3 in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Red Wings. Granlund tied the game at 1-1 with his first-period tally. The Finn has gotten on the scoresheet in consecutive games, but he had gone five outings without a point before that. The 28-year-old is up to four goals, nine points, 33 shots on net and six PIM through 16 appearances.
Granlund posted a power-play assist in Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Red Wings. Granlund earned the secondary helper on Filip Forsberg's third-period tally. The 28-year-old Granlund hasn't stood out on the scoresheet much -- he has eight points, 30 shots on goal and a minus-3 rating in 15 contests. His assist Tuesday was just his second power-play point of the year.
Granlund fired five shots on goal and saw 18:31 of ice time in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Blue Jackets, but failed to crack the scoresheet for the fifth straight game. Granlund has just seven points in 14 games this season, centering the Preds' top line between Filip Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson. Overall, Granlund has been a huge disappointment for Preds fans and fantasy owners alike since coming over from Minnesota at the trade deadline two seasons ago. Clearly, the team needs more from their top center if they are going to compete with the top teams in the NHL's Central Division this season.
Granlund scored a goal on two shots in Monday's 5-2 loss to Tampa Bay. He also provided a pair of hits. Granlund jammed home a loose puck in front of the net to pull Nashville to within 4-2 at 5:41 of the third period. The 28-year-old was held without a point in the season opener, but has since hit the scoresheet in four of the last five games (three goals, two assists).
Granlund scored a goal and added an assist with five shots in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over Chicago. Granlund sent the game into overtime when his howitzer of a one-timer from the left circle tied the game just over 11 minutes into the third period. Granlund later set up Roman Josi's goal in the extra session, giving him three points (two goals, one assist) in the last two games. The 28-year-old is finding his game quickly -- his five shots were a season high -- after missing the first three contests of the year.
