Flames 3 – Blues 2 – Iggy scores 1000th point

02 Apr

After (another) slow start the Flames managed to stage another comeback in a game that didn’t mean anything. Calgary was down 2-0 in the second period before Iginla notched his 38th goal of the season, and 998th point of his career. Then Iggy assisted on Tanguay’s game-tying goal, which was a beautiful 2-on-1 play. Then in the third, this happened…

So even though the Flames are out of it, at least we had something to cheer for. Actually two things, because the return of Langkow happened in this game as well. He started the game on the fourth line, and finished on the first. You could see he tired easily, but it’s been over a year so I guess that’s to be expected.

So here’s hoping that Iginla gets to 40 goals, which will be only the second time he’s gotten there since the lockout, six years ago.

    Iggy is awesome, what a great shot/goal. Hopefully he gets his 40th (40 is the new 50) and the Flames will have Langkow and Tanguay around next year to play on a line with him.

    Interesting that Sutter shortened his bench pretty much after the first period … it makes me wonder if he is worried about having a job next year if the Flames don’t finish strong? It’s too bad, b/c giving Nemisz and Bouma two and one minutes of playing time respectively sure ain’t gonna help this team in the long run.
