Matthew Tkachuk's 'filthy, disgusting hit' on Scheifele overshadows Flames' win


But playoff animosity didn't take long to brew in Calgary's 4-1 win over the Jets to start their qualifying round series Saturday in Edmonton.


Scheifele scored 14 playoffs goals for the Jets en route to the Western Conference final two years ago.


Calgary's Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan produced power-play goals and Tobias Rieder scored shorthanded in the second.


"It was a really good complete game from power play to penalty kill to goaltending, five on five I thought we did a great job tonight," Gaudreau said.


Tobias Reider's shorthanded goal in the 2nd period would hold up as the game winner in Calgary's 4-1 win against Winnipeg.


Talbot had less work than Vezina Trophy nominee and Jets counterpart Connor Hellebuyck, who stopped 29 shots in the loss.
