Heading into the meat of tonight's game in Los Angeles, things did not look great for the Calgary Flames. Down 3-0 to the defending Stanley Cup champions, the Flames seemed set for their ninth straight loss. To that point, the Flames had been out-played and largely out-classed by the Kings.

Then Johnny Gaudreau happened.

The Calgary Flames won 4-3 in overtime in a game that turned on the play of a 21-year-old rookie. Johnny Gaudreau saved Christmas.

Here's how it happened.

The Calgary Flames finally earned another point - their first since their OT win against Colorado on December 4 - via a 3-2 overtime loss against Vancouver. So ends 17 point-less days this month, and hopefully a sign that the tide is turning.

They're back in action on Monday night in Los Angeles in their last game before the Christmas break.
