Flames Head to Playoffs on a Win


, , , ,


Jarome Iginla netted his 50th goal of the season as the Calgary flames rolled to a 7-1 victory in Vancouver for their final game of the season. Iginla double, and triple-shifted with almost every line on the team, and eventually got his 50th on a close-in shot. He added 2 assists to bring his season total to a career-high 98 points.

The win puts Calgary temporarily in 6th spot in the Western Conference, pending the result of the Minnesota-Colorado game tomorrow night.

After the game, the Canucks held a skate-around ceremony for Trevor Linden who is expected to retire soon. Calgary Captain Jarome Iginla lead the whole team (some of whom came back onto the ice from the dressing room) to shake hands with Linden.
