Kiviranta Scores OT Winner To Complete Hat-trick And Eliminate Avalanche In Game 7

Joel Kiviranta

Who is this guy? Joel Kiviranta came into the spotlight in full flight in this game out of nowhere. Does anyone know where this guy came from? I know I didn’t until today. He comes up huge in this one by tying the game in the final 3 minutes and eventually capped off the hattrick in overtime to send Dallas to the Western Conference Finals. Alex Radulov (two) also scored for Dallas. Vladislav Namestnikov (two), Andre Burakovsky, and Nazem Kadri scored for Colorado.

What an absolute snipe by this kid. A legend was made tonight by the most unlikely player to do it. Dallas will now wait to see the winner of Vegas and Vancouver to determine their opponent for the Western Conference title. Congratulations Dallas. As for MacKinnon and Colorado? Pack your bags. The NHL bubble has spoken.
