So much for that “commanding” lead.
After digging themselves a 3-0 deficit in Game 6 of their series against Vancouver, the Flames replied in dramatic fashion by ripping off three straight goals of their own.
The Canucks netted their markers in a seven-minute span in the first, and would’ve gone to the intermission holding that lead had Michael Ferland not netted his first of the series at the 17:02 mark.
Then, the kids took over.
First, it was 20-year-old Sean Monahan, who scored his second goal of the series on assists from Jiri Hudler and Dennis Wideman just 62 seconds into the middle frame.
Just over four minutes later, it was 21-year-old Johnny Gaudreau that scored, converting helpers from Hudler and T.J. Brodie to tie things at 3-3.
If our last two posts suggest this is a wild game… well, yeah. It’s a wild game. Just moments after Calgary drew even, Luca Sbisa scored to put Vancouver back in front.
