Johnny Gaudreau registered two assists in a 5-3 win against Seattle on Tuesday. Those were Gaudreau's 100th and 101st points of the 2021-22 campaign. This is the first time he's ever recorded 100 points in a single season, though he did come very close to that mark in 2018-19. Gaudreau's first assist was on Matthew Tkachuk's power-play goal in the third period. That goal kicked off the Flames' comeback as they rallied back from a 3-1 deficit. “It’s cool,” Gaudreau said. “It was an exciting game. I didn’t think (the 100th) point was going to come there for a little bit. Then I just made a little pass down to Chucky and tried to go seam to Lindy, and it bounced right back to him, and he fired it in the net. It was a big one for us."
