The Morning After Dallas, Gm. 4: Johnny Gaudreau Improved His Penalty Shot Record

You'd be surprised to know Gaudreau hasn't scored that often on a penalty shot.



The Morning After

Calgary Flames 4 – Dallas Stars 1

Series Tied 2-2



-Penalty Shot Success?: Johnny Gaudreau got credit for the game winner last night by way of a penalty shot. Gaudreau was hooked on his way to the net and had the chance to "make up" for his breakaway miss in Game 3. He didn't miss this time, beating Jake Oettinger five hole and putting the Flames up 2-1. That makes Johnny Gaudreau 2-6 in his career on penalty shots.

-Still Blocking: It's a miracle that the Flames even scored four times and not because of Jake Oettinger, but because of the Dallas defence. In the first period alone the Stars put themselves in front of 11 shots. For the game Dallas blocked 27 Flames shots giving them 86 in the series so far.

Game 5: The NHL announced that Game 5 will take place in Calgary on Wednesday with a 7:30 PM MT start. In Canada the game can be seen on Sportsnet, CBC and TVA. In the states the game will be broadcast on ESPN.
