Red Light Disctrict: Iggy is Now Flames All-Time Leading Scorer!

Eric Duhatshek reports from the Globe and Mail:

"I've been blessed to play here in Calgary for a long
time," Iginla told Rogers Sportsnet, following the second-period
intermission. "Counting down, I tried not to think about it, but it's in
the back of your mind and it's nice to do it at home. The guys were great about
it, the fans were great about it - and I appreciate it."

 Iginla eclipsed former linemate Theoren Fleury, who
previously held the mark with 830 points. Unfortunately, Iggy's 5 point effort
came in a 8-6 loss to the Lightning tonight in Calgary. I was driving home
tonight from ball hockey listening to Peter Maher make the call on the FAN960 - The
Flames Faithful rocked the 'Dome after Jarome scored and you could hear chants
of "Iggy, Iggy, ..." Another tremendous
milestone for the
Flames' Captain, and he also joined the 400-Goal club in this game as well - no
small feat!

Congrats, Iginla!
