Flames prospect Glenn Gawdin propelled the Swift Current Broncos to a huge overtime victory over the Everett Silvertips in Game 3 on Tuesday, scoring a hat trick in the 3-2 win.
Swift Current now has a 2-1 lead in the WHL Championship series.
Gawdin, who signed with the Flames as a free agent this past year, leads the Broncos in postseason scoring with 12 goals and 29 points through 21 skates. He also led his club in regular season scoring with 56 goals and 125 points in 67 games.
Gawdin's first goal of the night opened the scoring in the first period. Taking a drop pass from Aleksi Heponiemi just above the hashmarks, Gawdin wired a wrist shot past Everett netminder Carter Hart at the 14:44 mark.
Everett responded with a pair of goals late in the first period and would hold a 2-1 advantage until Gawdin netted the equalizer at 16:23 of the third period.
Gawdin completed the hat trick just 2:40 into overtime, wristing a shot over Carter's shoulder to give his team the win.
"Glenn has been our guy all year, throughout the whole season and at different times," Swift Current head coach Manny Viveiros told WHL.com afterwards. "He's always stepped up for us. That's what we expect from him.
"I thought tonight was a game that was our best game of the series, the way we played. We played real fast, got in on the forecheck and did a lot of good things. Everett played well, too, there's no question about it.
"We're certainly pleased with the win. It's a fine line right now as far as winning and losing. We're fortunate we're getting that extra goal at the right time."
Game 4 takes place on Wednesday in Everett.
