Avalanche stun Flames in Game 2 to even the series
16 April, 2019, 11:58 | Author: Heidi Alvarez
The Flames are 20-8 in their last 28 games playing on 1 days rest, 5-2 in their last 7 games as a road favorite and 36-17 in their last 53 games as a favorite.
"I haven't quite heard anything like that before in my career, it gives you some confidence when you hear your name getting chanted", Smith said.
It was Avalanche winger Matt Nietowho finally managed to beat Smith in the second period when he scored a shorthanded goal to put his squad up 1-0. The shot would be MacKinnon's 12th attempted shot of the night. We had six goals in a game last night in a period.
Prior to Nieto's goal, Colorado had not scored since April 6 when Nathan MacKinnon scored 89 seconds into the second period of the Avalanche's final regular-season game.
"I don't look at anything as a big upset at all, one way or another", said Flames head coach Bill Peters, referring to some of the surprises on the out-of-town scoreboard, including the Presidents' Trophy-winning Tampa Bay Lightning losing their first two games against the eighth-seeded Columbus Blue Jackets in the Eastern Conference.
This was a very different Avalanche team than the one that lost Game 1 to the Flames 4-0.
"I've said it before: Nate's a superstar and that's what superstars do", linemate Gabriel Landeskog said.
"The first half of the game they seemed hungrier than us, like they wanted it more".
"I think we got a lot of good movement going", he said of a Colorado attack that often swarmed the Calgary end, showing great puck control that kept the Flames on their heels for long stretches. Also, overtime was the bane of the Avs' existence for most of the season, so I didn't have high hopes. Johnny Gaudreau's initial shot didn't get through to the net, nor did Bennett's shot attempt right after - but Monahan's third try went into the top corner, over the glove of Grubauer.
Flames' Captain Mark Giordano was on the ice when MacKinnon scored his game victor and although Gio credits the Avs for executing a good play, he feels his team needs to step up their game. The chants of "Smitty!" On a power play, Bennett backed out front from behind the net before zipping a no-look backhand pass across to Andersson, who had an empty net.
But like in Game 1 when he posted a 26-save shutout, Smith was excellent once again.
"We have to be better", Giordano said.
"The majority of this game I liked the way we played". "Down late or running into a hot goalie, we know we can win games against this team".
