Trailing the Phoenix Coyotes 4-3 with less 2 minutes to play in the 3rd period, it seemed that the Flames would end up with another loss at home. But Jarome Iginla and Curtis Glencross had other ideas. The Calgary Flames captain capitalized on a cross-crease pass from Alex Tanguay and banged the puck past Coyotes’ goalie Mike Smith to tie the game with 1:23 left in the period.
Just 23 seconds later, Curtis Glencross broke out of his scoring slump by beating Smith with a slap shot from the slot to put the Flames up 5-4. Everyone went nuts, including Sportsnet play-by-play guy, Rob Kerr, who I thought would either have a heart attack or lose his voice for good. Too bad the latter didn’t happen.
the good news: it seems the guys who are supposed to score for the Flames have finally woken up. Iggy scored two, and both Cammalleri and Glencross added goals of their own. Let’s see if this trend continues and we’re able to really put a win-streak together.
