BEIJING -- Calgary Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk has a lower-body injury and did not play against the Boston Bruins at Cadillac Arena on Wednesday (7:30 a.m. ET; NBCSN, SN), the second of two preseason games in the 2018 O.R.G. NHL China Games.
BEIJING -- Johnny Gaudreau stared into the distance, which looked endless on this crystal clear, sunny day. The Calgary Flames left wing had his arms resting on 500-year-old brick, his mind wandering back to school in Carneys Point, New Jersey, some 7,000 miles away.
