Video- Johnny Gaudreau With The Goal Of The Night

from Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun,

Johnny Gaudreau once again showed his love for three-on-three overtime action and the Flames once again were the beneficiaries when the diminutive rising star came through for the winner in their 2-1 victory over the Stanley Cup-champion Chicago Blackhawks Friday night at the Saddledome.

First Gaudreau dropped the jaws of most everyone in the Dome and then brought them to their feet by picking the pocket of Brent Seabrook before stickhandling in a phone booth to complete a dizzying deke on Scott Darling for the winner.

“What a goal,” head coach Bob Hartley said. “What a great effort also. He took a shot, then went to retrieve that puck, won the loose-puck battle and roofed it. Darling had absolutely no chance.”

The Flames have a 5-0 record in games decided in overtime, and Gaudreau has been part of the winning goal on four occasions.

“It seems like every time he’s on the ice, he’s so dynamic he can make things happen,” captain Mark Giordano said. “And if he gets that chance, he usually makes the other team pay.

“He reminds me a little bit of (Pavel) Datsyuk with that quick stick and stick lift, and to be able to turn the other way is not easy to do, and he does it consistently.”
