Avalanche stun Flames in Game 2 to even the series

Rantanen back for Avs in Game 1 loss to Flames

All of the hard work from the Avs looked like it would be for naught, but a hero would emerge late, as J.T. Compher would clean up the garbage in front of the net with Grubauer pulled to tie the game with just under three minutes remaining. I'll take a shot with the Avalanche and the slight plus money.

A big moment in the game came early in the second as the Avs went to the power play for the third consecutive time.

It took until 14:25 of the second period for the game's first goal, but it was worth the wait as Mangiapane's unassisted goal was a highlight-reel effort.

Unfortunately, Flames goalie Mike Smith seemed to be accessing his inner Dominik Hasek, flopping around but making saves.

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.

"Honestly I've never heard anything like that before in my career", Smith said of the chants, according to Postmedia's Kristen Anderson.

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.

At least 30 people were reportedly injured and killed, including some soldiers, who were hit with flying debris. More than 140,000 customers lost power in Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Arkansas as of late Saturday.

It was Smith's first playoff shutout since May 20, 2012.

Hathaway also had an indirect hand in the Flames' second goal later in the second as he was hauled down while sending a shot off the crossbar to draw a penalty. On the goal, Mark Giordano's point shot was deflected out of the air by Tkachuk. "I've said it before: Nate's a superstar and that's what superstars do". Called a goal on the ice, Avalanche coach Jared Bednar challenged it, suggesting it was deflected by a high stick, but the goal stood after a lengthy review.

"As good as Calgary was in Game 1, and even tonight, I thought we were one step ahead", said Avs captain Gabriel Landeskog, whose club has indeed been the better of the two in a first round series now tied 1-1.

Notes: Smith was also credited with an assist on the empty-net goal.

"I felt great. I felt fresh", MacKinnon said, having played exactly 24 minutes in regulation time with another 2:26 in overtime. He makes the saves he needs to. I think that's when everybody plays their best, being instinctual and going off how they feel and not really thinking too much or overthinking. Calgary opened up the playoffs at home for the first time since 2006.

Coach Bill Peters agreed the team failed to start on time - a development masked once again by Smith.
