Calgary Flames 5, Boston Bruins 4 (OT)
What a fun game that was to watch. Even if the Flames wouldn’t have come out on top, the game overall was one of those entertaining matches that keeps you watching.
Calgary went up quickly 2-0, with a start that got the building really into the game. However the Bruins were able to finish the first period with a goal and come out strong in the second period to tie the game 2-2. Then Boston scored, then Calgary scored, then Boston again – three goals in 46 seconds – and the game was tied 3-3.
There wasn’t any scoring in the final period, until Dougie Hamilton made a horrible error on the powerplay. Marchand was able to get by him and go in on a breakaway shorthanded. Hamilton took the penalty, which lead to a penalty shot, which lead to Marchand scoring to put Boston up 4-3 late in the third period. The Flames would not be denied however, when Jiri Hudler scored with just 1.2 seconds left to send the game to overtime.
Overtime is Johnny Hockey time
Gaudreau already had two goals on the night going into overtime. Calgary in overtime was 5-1, with Johnny either scoring or setting up 4 of those 5 game winners. Then with just under 2 minutes left in extra time, Gaudreau scored his hat trick goal, at home, in overtime. How cool was that?
You don’t get to see games that exciting too often, I hope you all had a chance to watch it. But if not, here’s a recap.
