Calgary Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk suspended 1 game for spearing incident

Calgary Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk suspended 1 game for spearing incident”

"Second time, I guess, over the last little while I have seen him do something like that where, like I said, if you're going to do it, you might as well make it count and try to hurt somebody if you're going to do something stupid", Martin said.

Tkachuk's jab went undetected by the officials and no penalty was called. "I don't think it's a good hockey play, by any means".

It's no surprise league law-keepers want to chat with Tkachuk after he speared Toronto Maple Leafs fourth-liner Matt Martin from the bench during a first-period scrum in Wednesday's 2-1 shootout loss at Air Canada Centre.

Toronto Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock knows goaltender Frederik Andersen was the difference between two points or a home loss against the Calgary Flames. Tkachuk, a Flames forward standing at the bench, reached over the boards and into the pile of bodies and thrusted his stick at Martin.

Sean Monahan nearly doubled Calgary's lead seven minutes into the second only for Andersen to turn him away from between the hash marks. "He'll learn over time but you gotta give Tkachuk credit - he played a good game, he played hard".

Rielly finally evened the score with 1:13 to play in the second, with his shot from the sideboards beating a screened Smith blocker side.

"I didn't feel it at the time", Martin said. "We'd like the two points but it didn't happen". Jagr has a goal and six assists in 17 games this season for the Flames. Toronto center Tyler Bozak was back in the lineup after missing two games and was placed on a line between James van Riemsdyk and Mitch Marner to start the game. Members of the Grey Cup champion Toronto Argonauts took part in the ceremonial puck drop.

Flames: At Montreal on Thursday night.
