Tyler Groavac scored the second goal in a 3-2 loss of the Minnesota Wild to the Colorado Avalanche Saturday night.
This was not only the second goal of the night, but the second of the season and the second career goal for Groavac. Unfortunately it is a little too soon to form a fantasy bandwagon for third-year center because his other goal was earned well back in October in a 4-0 win over the Stars. In eight games this year, he has earned only two points. Nov 20 - 1:57 AM
