Spin: Tkachuk set up Elias Lindholm's third-period tally. Those two forwards, as well as Johnny Gaudreau, composed the Flames' top line. After a summer of trade rumors, Tkachuk appears set to play out the last year of his contract with the Flames. The 23-year-old's offense dipped to 43 points with 151 shots on net and 132 hits in 56 games last year, so there's a chance he could put together a bounce-back season in 2021-22. His career-best output is 77 points in 80 games in 2018-19.
