The Calgary Flames proved that they can put up goals in Game 1 of the first round against the Avalanche. I had space and took it to the net. I just wanted to bring it to my backhand and I saw open ice there. He didn't have almost the same impact on this game, and that's what Zadorov can provide that no other player on the Avs can.
Calgary Flames defenseman Mark Giordano (5) and Colorado Avalanche center Derick Brassard (18) battle for the puck in first period in game two of the first round of the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs at Scotiabank Saddledome.
Nieto capitalized on faulty stickwork by Calgary defenseman T.J. Brodie and ripped a shot past Mike Smith on a breakaway.
Then, with a little extra flourish afterwards, Smith threw out his glove to snag Derrick Brassard's unsafe snap shot.
The winning goal was far from the greasy effort you usually expect when a playoff game goes beyond 60 minutes.
First, he flashed the leather to snag a backhand off the stick of Gabriel Landeskog. Also, overtime was the bane of the Avs' existence for most of the season, so I didn't have high hopes. "I'm happy it went in", Mangiapane said.
"Honestly I've never heard anything like that before in my career", Smith said of the chants, according to Postmedia's Kristen Anderson.

Unai Emery challenges Aaron Ramsey to end Arsenal career in style
Arsenal travelled to Watford on Monday night, looking to reclaim a top-four place as the season enters its climax. The Spaniard said: "I try to choose the best players for the next game".
It was Smith's first playoff shutout since May 20, 2012 with the Phoenix Coyotes when he made 36 stops to shut out the Los Angeles Kings in Game 4 of the Western Conference final. The Coyotes lost the next game and Smith hadn't played a playoff game since. On the goal, Mark Giordano's point shot was deflected out of the air by Tkachuk.
Grubauer finished with 35 saves, and Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said his team could easily be down two games if not for his goaltender's performance.
Tkachuk sealed it 14 seconds later with an empty-netter off an assist from Smith. He's a big goalie.
Four minutes later, Philipp Grubauer came up with a big save on Michael Frolik, which led to a Mikko Rantanen pass over the blue line giving MacKinnon the golden chance he finished brilliantly. "I'd like to test him a little bit more".
It was MacKinnon's second consecutive industrial-strength night of work, having played 25:04 in Game 1, and he can expect pretty much the same moving forward.
Coach Bill Peters agreed the team failed to start on time - a development masked once again by Smith.
