Johnny Gaudreau scores OT winner to lift Calgary Flames past Dallas Stars, into second round

Just call him Johnny Clutch. Calgary Flames forward Johnny Gaudreau scored the overtime winner to put Calgary past the Dallas Stars 3-2 in Game 7 of their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series on Sunday.

The Flames now advance to the second round for the first time since 2014-15, and it'll be for a full-scale Battle of Alberta: Playoff Edition against their provincial rival, the Edmonton Oilers.

If there was any doubt what the moment meant to Gaudreau, he made it clear postgame when asked where that winner ranked all time in his career.
