Johnny Gaudreau’s milestones just keep piling up

I was thinking about it this week: it feels like every game these days there’s a new historical mark equaled or eclipsed by Johnny Gaudreau. He’s in the midst of one of the best seasons in Flames history and still has five games to go. Knowing that, I thought I’d put together a rundown of…
