Johnny Gaudreau Keeps Scoring

01/08/2019 at 7:57am EST

from Eric Francis of Sportsnet,

It was symbolic of just how well things have been going for Johnny Gaudreau of late.

Opening the third period of a 2-2 game with his sixth breakaway of this four-game road trip, Gaudreau’s shot seemed to be absorbed by Blackhawks goalie Collin Delia before it somehow squirted through his pads and into the net.

It came a few hours after Gaudreau opened the scoring with a gift of a rebound into an open net, and one day after attending the dramatic playoff win by his beloved Philadelphia Eagles at Soldier Field.

Everything is going Gaudreau’s way, which makes sense given he’s dominating games like that kid McDavid is accustomed to.

It’s an appropriate comparison as Gaudreau’s 13 points in his last five games put him two points ahead of the Oilers captain in a scoring race the fired-up Flame now sits third in.

He is, quite simply, the talk of the league.

Deservedly so.
