Forward Johnny Gaudreau and the Calgary Flames have stepped up their play when the game ventures past regulation this season.
In fact, Gaudreau has collected seven points (three goals, four assists) in the extra session to tie Markus Naslund (2003-04) and Joe Thornton (2005-06) for the NHL record. The 22-year-old Gaudreau told reporters that he gets excited when the contest goes to overtime – and so do the Flames, who are an NHL-best 8-1 in games that span past the third period.
