It’s late, take this for what you will, but it’s certainly a different tune than what Star Tribune Minnesota Wild beat writer Michael Russo had been whistling previously.

These next few days could be interesting. You can read my article on Granlund from earlier today by clicking here. Have a good night, folks; I know I’ll sleep easier knowing Minnesota is now 4-1-0 in preseason action. Let’s hope it continues like this once the puck officially drops on the season.

Scott will have tonight’s game recap up shortly.
