Bruins top Flames in Iginla's return to Calgary
Calgary, AB (SportsNetwork.com) - The Boston Bruins made Jarome Iginla's return to Calgary a triumphant one, scoring a pair of goals late in the third period to rally for a 2-1 victory over the Flames at Scotiabank Saddledome.
Reilly Smith potted the game-winner with 4:33 left to play, a mere 98 seconds after David Krejci recorded the equalizer with the Bruins on the power play.
Iginla, the Flames' all-time leader in goals (525), points (1,095) and games played (1,219), faced the club he spent 16 highly productive seasons with for the first time since Calgary traded its longtime captain to Pittsburgh during last April's trade deadline. The revered 36-year-old received a warm and rousing ovation from the home crowd during postgame introductions.
Tuukka Rask stopped 26-of-27 shots to help Boston to its third straight win and fifth in six games.
Jiri Hudler had the lone goal for Calgary, which received 22 saves from Reto Berra in a losing cause.
