Calgary Flames vs. Winnipeg Jets Recap JAN 14TH 2021

Four different players scored while Cam Talbot posted the shutout, as the Calgary Flames beat the Winnipeg Jets 4-0 Thursday in Edmonton to clinch their Western Conference qualifying round series.

Dillon Dube, Sam Bennett, Sean Monahan and Rasmus Andersson all scored for the Flames, who beat the Jets in four games to become the first Western-based squad to win a qualifying-round set. They will start the Stanley Cup playoffs as early as Tuesday.

Talbot made 31 saves for his third career playoff shutout against a Jets team that was decimated by injuries. Winnipeg lost top level forwards Mark Scheifele and Patrik Laine in the first game of the series, as well as Mason Appleton. They were also without center Bryan Little due to an injury sustained during the regular season.

Dube opened the scoring with his first playoff goal. Dube was denied on his first rebound opportunity after Erik Gustafsson's point shot was stopped, but slipped home his second chance just 3:21 into the game. It was the first time in the series that Calgary scored first.

The Jets pushed for the equalizer in an even opening period, but suffered a huge blow when Bennett doubled the lead with 0.7 seconds left in the first period by pouncing on a rebound during a wild scramble.

Monahan and Andersson added empty-net goals 19 seconds apart late in the third period to round out the scoring. Monahan and Bennett both had two-point nights.

Although the result seemed one-sided, Talbot was full measure for the shutout. He made a crucial first-period save on Kyle Connor, a clutch stop on Adam Lowry in the second frame and then big stops on Nikolaj Ehlers and Connor while the Jets were down by two goals.

Goalie Connor Hellebuyck stopped 30 shots for the Jets, who were Stanley Cup contenders a year ago but had a summer of upheaval and a disappointing season.

The Flames won't find out their first-round playoff opposition until the qualifying round is complete, but it will be one of the Vegas Golden Knights, St. Louis Blues, Dallas Stars or Colorado Avalanche -- who upset them in the first round in the 2019 playoffs.

Patrik Laine became the overtime hero with his second goal of the night to give the Winnipeg Jets a 4-3 victory over the Calgary Flames Thursday night in Winnipeg to kick off the season.

Laine, whose future with the team became a question mark due to a trade request, capped a three-point night when he elected to shoot during a two-on-one rush he created by going end-to-end, hitting the mark 78 seconds into the extra frame for the unassisted tally.

Connor Hellebuyck made 23 saves to collect the win that saw his team erase a 3-1 deficit.

Looking for a strong start to the season -- and to snap the franchise's season-opener futility -- the Flames staked themselves to a two-goal lead before the first intermission with a strong period.

Matthew Tkachuk put the visitors on the board at the 4:28 mark when he deflected a Rasmus Andersson point shot up and over the Jets goalie.

Seconds after Andersson came within a whisker of scoring, Laine tied the game at the 7:24 mark with a top-shelf wrist shot from the slot while on a breakaway, but Johnny Gaudreau again put the Flames ahead with a power-play tally exactly four minutes later.

Then, Elias Lindholm -- who set up Gaudreau with a seeing-eye pass on his team's second goal -- blasted a one-timer home to make it a 3-1 game with 3:32 remaining in the opening frame.

However, the Jets flipped the script with a dominating second period and drew even. Just 34 seconds into the period, Mark Scheifele pounced on a loose puck following a couple of Flames turnovers -- giving him a point in eight consecutive season openers -- and then Kyle Connor's five-on-three power-play goal with 4:56 remaining in the stanza evened the score.

Connor and Lindholm both finished the night with two points.

Jacob Markstrom stopped 30 shots for the Flames, his biggest on Scheifele in the final minutes -- a glove save after he turned over the puck to force overtime.
