Officials didn't appear they were initially going to call a penalty, but after conferring they decided to give Kunitz a five-minute major for elbowing and a 10-minute game misconduct penalty. 

The Flames ended up scoring on a pair of goals on the ensuing power play, as Derek Ryan and Elias Lindholm each notched tallies.
