what a memorable night, for him.  Did that stand up as the winner?

Congrats Mr. Iginla.

First NHLer to get to 1000 points while getting all those points in the clutch & grab era (post 95-96) . I believe Jumbo Joe will be the second to do it in the c&g era, he’s right behind needing only 3 points to reach the 1000 point plateau. Iginla will probably be the first to get to 500 goals in the c&g era also.

That’s my man, Iggy at the helm. It’s kinda sad that he seems to have these milestone years when the team misses the playoffs :/. As much as I love seeing Iggy in a Flames sweater I wouldn’t begrudge him one bit if he wanted to be sent to a contender. The guy has been a workhorse ever since arriving in Calgary.
