You dream about stuff like that, scoring in a Game 7 in overtime,” he said after the game.

Gaudreau got the shot past Stars goaltender Jake Oettinger from a near-impossible angle. The shot went over Oettinger’s right shoulder stick side and the fans at the Scotiabank Saddledome went crazy.

I’ve been here for nine years and never had even a sniff of a chance to play them in playoffs, so it’s pretty special,” Gaudreau added. “It’s going to be a lot of fun, good for the province, going to be a lot of fun for them, for us. It’s going to be a pretty cool series.
