Avs Take Win Against Flames With OT Score By MacKinnon

Colorado was carrying much of the play, yet the Calgary Flames forced Game 2 to overtime thanks mostly to Mike Smith's fantastic work (again) in net.

CALGARY, AB - APRIL 13: Mikko Rantanen #96 of the Colorado Avalanche attempts a wrap-around on the net of Mike Smith #41 of the Calgary Flames in Game Two of the Western Conference First Round during the 2019 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Scotiabank Saddledome on April 13, 2019 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Calgary was generating pressure on the power play, but T.J. Brodie couldn't control a bouncing puck at the blue line, and Nieto sped away on a breakaway that he finished with a top-shelf wrist shot.

The tension really escalated in Game 2, with Ian Cole taking a bad penalty on a hit on James Neal, while Samuel Girard's health is in question after he left the contest in apparent pain. MacKinnon had seven shots on goal and 12 attempts.

After dominating the majority of the play in regulation, the Avalanche almost lost the game late in the third period when Sean Monahan got loose in front to beat Philipp Grubauer after a few blocked shots. "I'm happy it went in", Mangiapane said. Chants of "Smitty! Smitty!"

Colorado tied it at 2 at 17:21 of the third period on Compher's first career playoff goal, the result of some fortuitous bouncing of the puck.

"We have to be better". Just a little over eight minutes into overtime, Grubauer would make a huge stop on a wide open Michael Frolik, and the Avs would transition the other way. The Colorado Avalanche are averaging 1.5 goals per game and are scoring on zero percent of their power play opportunities. Centre Derek Ryan had a breakout season for the Flames with 13 goals and 25 assists, and is only slightly taller at 5-10.

Three Things We Learnt From Watching Manchester City Win Again
Although Luka Milivojevic scored a free-kick to make it 2-1 after Raheem Sterling's brace, Jesus struck in stoppage time to close out a victory that briefly moved City back above Liverpool in the title race.

The only cheers heard at home during the regular season were of the Bronx variety as Smith struggled at times, posting an.889 save percentage on home ice.

"For us, we're not going to just roll over because we're running into a hot goalie". It was the first playoff game as a head coach for Bill Peters, who failed to make the postseason in his four seasons with Carolina. We don't know what's going on there, so let's not focus on that.

"The first half of the game they seemed hungrier than us, like they wanted it more".

"I liked the start coming into an energized building against an energized team". We didn't have a big enough pushback.

The chaos began early with scrambles and rumbles at both ends of the ice, Smith even channeling his inner Billy Smith by offering Colorado's Derick Brassard a blocker sandwich that would earn them both roughing minors 4:34 into the first period.

They'll get a chance to show it Monday in Denver.
