Tkachuk gets 1st goal in hometown, leads Flames over Blues
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Matthew Tkachuk spent his childhood dreaming of scoring an NHL goal in his hometown.
It became reality Sunday.
Tkachuk got his first goal in the city where his dad was a star, Johnny Gaudreau and Alan Quine each scored twice, and the Calgary Flames beat the St. Louis Blues 7-2.
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — With a last name such as his, Brady Tkachuk's life has unsurprisingly revolved around hockey.
Whether it was breaking basement windows or the garage door playing with his father Keith and older brother Matthew, or heading to the rink to attend Blues practices, the 18-year-old has plenty of childhood memories while growing up in St. Louis.
