Mikael Granlund, who has struggled in the faceoff circle all season, finally had a good game in the dot.
He won 10 of 14 draws against the Flames Friday night. Minnesota Mike Yeo loves Granlund's skill and overall game and the young center could be a star in this league if he just improves his sub-par faceoff skills.
