Calgary suffered a 4-3 loss to Anaheim on Sunday night, but forward Kris Versteeg was a bright spot in the regular-season home finale. The 30-year-old tallied a pair of powerplay goals to match his single-season high of eight powerplay goals from 2011-12. It was also his second straight multi-point game after a pair of assists on Friday against the San Jose Sharks and now has six points (2G, 4A) in his last five games.
DID YOU KNOW?
Calgary has won 32 consecutive times when holding a lead after two periods. Calgary's only loss this season when leading after 40 minutes came on Oct.15 when they still earned a point in a shootout loss - they are the only team in the NHL who have just a single loss when leading after the second frame.
