Tkachuk scores tying, winning goals, Flames top Predators
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Matthew Tkachuk tied the game in the final minute of regulation and scored the winning goal with just over a second left in overtime on a nifty shot between his legs, leading the Calgary Flames to a 6-5 win over the Nashville Predators on Thursday night.
Calgary rallied from a three-goal deficit and ended Nashville’s four-game winning streak.
On the winner, Tkachuk skated in front of the net against two Nashville defenders, let the puck slip between his legs and flipped a shot that beat Predators goalie Pekka Rinne high to the stick side with 1.4 seconds left in overtime.
Montreal’s Brendan Gallagher scored his seventh of the season during a 6-on-5 sequence with 1:58 left in regulation, taking a perfect feed from the corner and beating Vegas goalie Marc-Andre Fleury between the pads to tie the game at 4-all.
Domi then scored his fourth goal of the season when the puck trickled through the pads of Fleury for the winning goal.
Goaltender Keith Kincaid made 31 saves for Montreal.
