Matthew Tkachuk’s 14th goal of the season snapped a 1-1 tie with 11:15 remaining in the Flames’ 2-1 win at Minnesota. It
was Calgary’s league-high 50th third-period goal of the season and left the Flames 11-2-1 in their last 14 games.
Mark Giordano became the first Flames defenceman to score short-handed goals in consecutive games, leaving him with nine
points in his last four contests.
