Granato scores twice to lead Kings over Red Wings, 4-3

October 29, 1991

DETROIT QTB — DETROIT -- Tony Granato scored his second goal of the game with 1 minute, 17 seconds to play to give the Los Angeles Kings a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Red Wings last night.

Granato took a pass from Bob Kudelski and fired a shot that Tomas Sandstrom appeared to tip between Tim Cheveldae's legs, but Granato was given credit for the goal, breaking a 3-3 tie.

Wayne Gretzky returned to the Kings' lineup after missing five games to be with his father, who is hospitalized in Hamilton, Ontario, after suffering a brain aneurysm. Gretzky had one assist, but failed to score his first goal of the season. His six-game streak without a goal is the longest of his career.

Gretzky nearly gave the Kings a 4-3 lead midway through the third period, but was robbed by Cheveldae's glove save.

Detroit's Paul Ysebaert opened the scoring at 7:04 of the first period, converting Shawn Burr's pass from behind the net.
