WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Johnny Gaudreau scored the shootout winner and the Calgary Flames beat the Winnipeg Jets 4-3 on Monday night.
Gaudreau beat Connor Hellebuyck on a nice move between the pads in the fourth round and the Flames picked up their second straight win.
Gaudreau, Andrew Mangiapane, and Christopher Tanev scored in regulation for Calgary. Jacob Markstrom, who made a couple of great saves in the shootout, turned aside 25 shots in 65 minutes. Elias Lindholm had two assists.
“I feel really comfortable,” he said. “Me and Sean (Monahan) are playing really good in our defensive zone. We’re being smart. I don’t think we’ve been out on the ice for a 5-on-5 goal (against),” said Gaudreau, who is coming off his worst offensive season in 2019-20 — 58 points in 70 games.
NOTES: Gaudreau has 10 points in eight games to start the season. … Jets center Adam Lowry saw a six-game point streak (four goals, four assists) come to an end. … Connor scored two power-play goals in a game for the first time in his career. … Dubois remains unavailable for Winnipeg as he continues to serve a two-week quarantine after crossing the Canada-U.S. border shortly after the deal with Columbus was finalized. The center could make his debut when Winnipeg visits Calgary Feb. 9.
