The Calgary Flames are in a battle with the Edmonton Oilers over who's going to be ''Canada's team'' this Playoffs, so far the Flames are up in the series 1-0.

Matthew Tkachuk was a big part of the win both physically and mentally, scoring 3 goals while making a few good chirps to Evander Kane. Tkachuk would put rivalries aside and show he's got a heart of gold and have a special interaction with Edmonton Oilers super fan Ben Stelter after the Flames win.
