Los Angeles3

The Calgary Flames won their first game at home while solidifying a place in the NHL record books tonight.

Daymond Langkow’s 2nd goal of the night at 16:02 of the second period broke an NHL record that has stood since the Ottawa Senators had 2-goal scorers in their first 6 games of the 1917-18 and 1920-21 seasons. The Flames have now had a player score 2 goals in each of their first 7 games this season.

The Flames also solved their 2nd period scoring problems by scoring 3 unanswered goals in the 2nd frame. Langkow scored 2 goals and Craig Conroy added another in the 2nd period.

With his 2 goals, Langkow is now tied with Ottawa’s Danny Heatley for the lead in NHL scoring. Both players have 7 goals on the season.
