Jarome Iginla and Matthew Lombardi score two goals 1.42 minutes apart in the second period as the the Flames defeated the Caps 2-1. The Flames snapped a 2 game losing streak.
The Calgary Flames were perfect on the penalty kill, including a 9 minute power play. Their defensive zone was much better, limiting the Capitals' scoring chances. Cory Sarich had his best game of the season. The forwards kept track of where they were, and knew where Mr. Ovechkin was all night and did a great job on him.
Kipper played his best game of the season, he was outstanding in every sense of the word. That was the Kipper that the Flames need all season in order to be successful.
The powerplay was a woeful 1 for 10. The Flames should have won this game a long time ago Their powerplay at times was hard to watch, which really puzzles me. The Flames have the forwards and with Cammy should be dynamite, yet were awful.
Overall, a pretty solid effort. Maybe their best game of the season. I was very happy. I was actually smiling after this game. Let's hope that happens more often.
