Kings captain Dustin Brown opened the scoring 3:28 into the first period when he found a bouncing puck on his stick right in the slot. He wasted no time firing the puck past Miikka Kiprusoff’s stick to put his team up 1-0.
Not to be outdone, Jarome Iginla evened the score with an absolute rocket from the side boards midway through the 2nd period. It was Iggy’s 502nd NHL goal and it was a ripper.
A good indication of the excitement of the game was indicated on Twitter again. Instead of really keying in on the magnificent play of our Calgary Flames, fans chose to focus on that stupid Panago pizza commercial and the Telus guy “with both eyes”. Yes, it was one of the more memorable moments in my Calgary Flames fan history.
All sleepiness and joking aside, the win was a big one for the Flames who have 3 points in the first two games of their three-game road trip and are now only 2 points behind 8th place Colorado in the Western Conference playoff race.
The road trip concludes on Saturday night in Edmonton.
