5th place in the NW division where all teams have games in hand, Calgary took two points in another crucial game vs the Nashville Predators who just a month ago were in 4th place–now 11th. But how’s this for wild.
Jarome Iginla scored his 30th goal of the season, his 10th season with 30 goals or more, on a penalty shot no less. (Same ref as last game when two penalty shots were called).
Iginla’s penalty shot goal was his 30th of the season, and tied the game at 2 a piece.
After a slow start where Nashville went up first, Calgary stormed back in the final two frames dominating play.
It was great to see tons of chances from the lieks of Tanguay, Bourque who played a solid game, Glencross’ 22nd goal, and Jokinen.
Kiprusoff with another 30 win season and his 20th start in a row. Somebody give this guy a break, he can’t play 100 games a year! Mind you he is a 6.5 million dollar athlete, but still, he needs a rest soon……
Calgary sits now 4 points ahead of teams with two games in hand. That means they’re picking up points and pulling ahead bit by bit. The margin for error, however, remains slim.
Notes: Phoenix up Wednesday. Moss played on the top line in Morrison’s center position.
