Iginla sparks Flames to third in a row

November 8, 2009

Jarome Iginla scored the go-ahead goal and Miikka Kiprusoff made 32 saves as the CalgaryFlames beat the New York Rangers, 3-1, Saturday night for their third win in a row.

Iginla's eighth goal of the season at 16:47 of the second period came on a power play and broke a 1-1 tie.

Daymond Langkow also scored for Calgary (10-4-1). Home for just one game, the Flames return to the road Tuesday night kicking off a three-game road trip in Montreal.

Daniel Girardi scored for New York (10-7-1), which went 1-2 on its trip to Western Canada. The Rangers lost captain Chris Drury less than one minute into the game when Flames forward Curtis Glencross caught the unsuspecting Drury with a shoulder to the head.
