National Hockey League roundup: Avs put Flames on brink with OT win

National Hockey League roundup: Avs put Flames on brink with OT win

Then, he was on the ice when Mikko Rantanen scored his second goal of the game to give the Avs a commanding 3-1 series lead.

The Tampa Bay Lightning shockingly were swept by the Columbus Jackets, and the Calgary Flames are in danger of suffering a similar fate Friday night.

"Anytime you bring a guy in, somebody has to come out, right?" The Calgary Flames held a 2-0 lead with 12 minutes remaining in the third period. Slated to take his spot on the third line is Austin Czarnik, making his career playoff debut, as Neal will have to watch from the press box.

"I like our team ... we'll worry about one game at a time, play well (Friday) and go from there". He's a good boss saying the right things at the right time, and the Flames need this type of loose optimism.

After giving up a tying goal late in regulation time against the Colorado Avalanche, the Flames fell 3-2 in overtime for the second straight game and now trail 3-1 in their opening round Stanley Cup playoff series.

Averaging 43 shots against a game against after a league-leading 28.1 in the regular season, the Flames have leaned too much on the heroics of their 37-year-old netminder. "I think their goalie is playing well".

The Flames are 9-4 in the last 13 meetings.

But at no point did he claim they'd hit "rock bottom", despite falling, yet again, to the crafty Nathan MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen, and the rest of the upstart Avalanche in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime heartbreaker in Game 4.

Monahan doesn't have the same wheels as Gaudreau, but he has also struggled in getting space in the slot to bang home rebounds and find clean looks on Grubauer.

"We haven't scored enough".

"When [Czarnik] has come into the lineup, he's given us an element of skill in the offensive zone", Peters told reporters in Calgary.

A Colorado Avalanche fan had a unique way of rooting for upstart defenseman Cale Makar during the team's Game 4 win over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday. On Saturday he played in the championship game and signed with Colorado on Sunday. Pekka Rinne, who made 40 saves in a 3-2 win over the Stars in Game 3 on Monday, yielded four goals on eight shots before being relieved by Juuse Saros (20 saves). Can Calgary get off the mat or is Colorado the better bet to finish off this series?

After its most successful regular-season campaign since the Stanley Cup-winning team of 1989, the summer will feel very long indeed if Calgary can't extend their season.
