GAME AT A GLANCE
It was good news all around for the Flames Monday. They had a god start to a game at home. A franchise record was set. They won. They moved into first place. And they scored plenty in doing it all.
First and foremost, Jarome Iginla scored goal 365 to move past Theo Fleury into the franchise lead for goals scored when his shot from the slot on a first period power play beat Manny Legace.

The Flames then went on to down St. Louis and move into first place in the Northwest Division as they head out on the road for the next four games.
There had been the much talked about slow starts. The Calgary Flames great engima was the first 20 minutes of play. On Monday, against St. Louis, Alex Tanguay decided to fix that, scoring on a wrist shot just 21 seconds into the game. Kristian Huselius then ended a 20-game scoring slump when he made it 2-0 in the first, on a power play. The Blues got one back before Iginla scored his record-setting goal to give the Flames a 3-1 lead.
Matthew Lombardi, another Flame who had been struggling to score, put the Flames up 4-2 when he burst in shorthanded and scored, making it 4-2 Calgary and snapping a 19-game goal-less drought.
The fourth line even chipped in in the third period when Marcus Nilson, off a set-up from Eric Godard, put home his second of the season to make it 5-2 at 6:51. Shortly after Daymond Langkow scored his 26th of the season and Tanguay finished off the Flames scoring with an empty-net, shorthanded goal.
