The rookie forward scored twice as part of five unanswered goals by the Flames en route to a 6-3 win against the Anaheim Ducks. The victory stretched Calgary's point streak to five straight games (4-0-1).
Gaudreau had a goal waved off 39 seconds after forward Matt Stajan opened the scoring for the Flames but scored the equalizer at 15:25 of the first period when he received a pass from forward Josh Jooris and connected on a backhand that went off each post before going over the line. Gaudreau's second goal came on the power play at 13:59 of the second when he finished a give-and-go with defenseman Dennis Wideman.
"Everyone's stepping up here, whether it's a defenseman or a forward, first line or fourth line," Gaudreau said. "It's great to see that too when we're coming down the playoff stretch here. It's going to help us in the long run."
