Calgary (37-19-6) at Ottawa (23-28-10), 7:30 p.m. EST
OTTAWA (Ticker) — The Calgary Flames are looking to put an ugly
performance in the past when they open a season-high seven-game
road trip against the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday.
The Flames are third in the Western Conference standings after
earning points in nine straight games to close February, posting
a 7-0-2 record over that span.
Calgary’s run of success came to an end Sunday, when it dropped
an embarrassing 8-6 decision to the Tampa Bay Lightning
(21-30-12), who are 13th in the Eastern Conference.
Overshadowed by the loss was a record-breaking night for Jarome
Iginla, who scored two goals and had three assists to become the
Flames’ all-time leading scorer.
The captain surpassed Theoren Fleury’s total of 830 points and
enters Tuesday’s contest with 834 career points.
Calgary should get back on track against the Senators, who are
1-3-2 over their last six games, which include a 4-3 overtime
loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday.
