Have Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan played their final game as a member of the Calgary Flames? You’d have to think at least one of them is gone after the team lost in the first round for the third time in four years.

As two-thirds of Calgary’s top line – with right winger Elias Lindholm – Gaudreau and Monahan have failed yet again to show they can raise their game a notch when the NHL’s intensity level ramps up. The Flames offensive leaders were reduced to little more than ornaments during 5-on-5 play for most of Calgary’s first-round loss to the Dallas Stars. That was the case last year as well in a five-game upset loss to Colorado.
