Kings' Granato accomplishes goal

November 16, 1992|By Los Angeles Times

INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- When Tony Granato ended his scoring drought Tuesday night against Winnipeg, it didn't mean as much to him as it ordinarily would have.

For him, victories are the thing. And the Los Angeles Kings only tied the Jets.

On Saturday night, Granato found individual satisfaction as well as collective success as he scored twice in the Kings' 6-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers before a sellout crowd of 16,005 at the Forum.

The victory helped the Kings (12-4-2) stay in a first-place tie in the Smythe Division with Calgary, which defeated Tampa Bay. The Kings have won eight consecutive games at home since losing to Detroit Oct. 8. Overall, they are on a 6-0-1 streak and they haven't lost since Oct. 29 in Boston.

The Oilers hadn't lost in seven games, going 5-0-2 before Saturday night.
