The Flames got their fifth big win in the last six when they faced the New York Rangers on Sunday.
This was the first time Calgary has played at Madison Square Garden since January 2, 2006.
Jarome Iginla scored twice in a 4-3 win in that game, and after tonight, has eight goals and three assists against the Rangers.
It was a quiet, scoreless period except for a hooking penalty from Robyn Regehr 15 seconds in. Despite no goals, the Rangers dominated the Flames and recorded 11 shots on goal versus the Flames' seven. Brandon Dubinsky and Ryan Callahan had the two closest attempts of putting the Rangers on the board, but Kipper stopped them both.
The Flames started to dominate their play both offencively and defencively. Adrian Aucoin almost scored the first goal of the game when he slapped a wrister and hit the post. But it was Jarome Iginla who put the Flames on the board with his 14th goal of the season with help by Mike Cammalleri and Dion Phaneuf.
David Moss continues his scoring streak to 8 when he tipped in the puck in front of Henrik Lundqvist after pinging the post from a pass by Daymond Langkow near the left faceoff circle. Rene Bourque put the nail in the coffin and scored a short-handed goal on a penalty-kill in the last two minutes of the game.
