Granlund scored his 2nd of the game by tipping Tryamkin's shot from the point up and over Brian Elliot. He is currently sitting at nine goals and 17 points in 41 games this season and looks to have carved out a nice spot on the 2nd line alongside Brandon Sutter and Loui Eriksson. Michael Chaput and Loui Eriksson were the other two goal scorers for the Canucks in this one.

Markus Granlund and Bo Horvat scored during the shootout as the Vancouver Canucks beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2 Saturday night.

Neither shooter was able to find the back of the net during regulation when that would have been a difference maker before overtime. Sven Baerstchi and Daniel Sedin had the regulation markers. Both the Canucks and Leafs entered the game second from the bottom of their division, but the two points earned by Vancouver did not move them up. The Leafs single point will allow them to catch the Detroit Red Wings, however.

Markus Granlund used his stick as a bat at the 13:26 minute mark of the third period to score the second goal in the Vancouver Canucks 7-2 loss to the New York Rangers Tuesday night.

Granlund kept his stick just low enough to be awarded the goal and it caught Henrik Lundqvist off guard. Unfortunately the Rangers' goalie was much too stingy to make Granlund’s goal much more than a novelty. He was joined on the scoring sheet by Brandon Sutter late in the second.
