Jarome Iginla saves the day

Calgary Flames star Jarome Iginla had been in a bit of a slump lately. He hadn’t scored a goal in 11 games but last night was a nice way to break out of that slump. In the Flames match-up with the Coyotes last night, Iginla scored the game tying goal with just 9 seconds left to put them into OT. Phew.

Later he scored the game winner in a shootout to complete the comeback for the Flames. They came back from being down 3 goals in the third period to take the win.

“I was sure happy to see it go in for a number of reasons,” Iginla said.

“I was just trying to turn around and shoot it and that’s the way it goes sometimes,” Iginla said. “You’re just trying to put it to the net. The ones you don’t expect to, they go in sometimes. That sure felt good to see that go in.”

Dion Phaneuf also came up big for the Flames. Phaneuf was responsible for the other two goals that helped the Flames come back in the third.

Alexander Ovechkin’s OT goal lifts caps

The Washington Capitals also completed a good comeback last night with a 4-3 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets. Alexander is fastly developing in the games best young player. Sidney who?

Ovechkin and his team of youngsters are maturing. Ovechkin added two goals to his league leading total which is now at 45. One of those goals was the overtime game winner 2:28 minutes into overtime. The Final

“It doesn’t matter what the score is — 2-0, 4-0 — you’ve just got to play,” the Russian superstar said. “We just have to believe in ourselves. We know we can win the game. It doesn’t matter what happens. This was a big game for the young guys. We’re just growing up.”
