Four minutes into the first period of the Nashville Predators game, Dillon Dube opened the scoring for the Calgary Flames with a power-play goal, assisted by Mikael Backlund and Rasmus Andersson. Dube’s goal would be the lone goal in the first period.  

The Nashville Predators were able to score a pair of goals in the second period, with Roman Josi scoring early in the second to even things out, and then it would be Matt Duchene to score yet another goal for the predators minutes later, assisted by Josi and Mikael Granlund.  

Dube answered the call and scored his second goal of the game. The second period ended with the teams tied two goals a piece. 

Third period scoring was opened up by the Predator’s Filip Forsberg giving the predators a lead on the scoreboard within seconds of the period starting; the assists went to Matt Duchene and Mikael Granlund. But the Flames, Noah Hanifin was quick to put one back in the net, once again evening it out. Forsberg scored again in the third period with Duchene and Granlund assisting once again with the goal. 

With one second left in the third period, Matthew Tkachuk, assisted by Hanifin Johnny Gaudreau, scored what seemed to be a miracle goal, pushing the score 4-4. The goal warranted a review initiated by the NHL Situation Room but was ultimately given the green light.  

Calgary’s Elias Lindholm had the last say of the night, scoring for the Flames in overtime to a 5-4 win over the Nashville Predators. 

Though the predators lost on home ice at the Bridgestone Arena, they still managed to get a spot in the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Flames on the other hand saw Johnny Gaudreau play his 600th NHL game with two assists. 

The Flames are slated to play Minnesota on Thursday. The Wild are second in the central conference, while the boys in red sit atop the Pacific Division in the Western Conference, followed by the Edmonton Oilers.
