With last night's 3-1 victory over Columbus, Calgary tied the NHL record for consecutive wins on the road with their sixth straight, Can West reports. "It just gets us back in thick of things," said Alex Tanguay, who had the game winner for the Flames, who have jumped from the bottom of the Western Conference into the top eight.
"We're back in the playoffs, first and foremost," said Flames' coach Keenan. "we've got ourselves out of a hole..." "It's huge," added defenseman Adrian Aucoin. He and Jarome Iginla, who had eight goals in the course of the trip, accounted for the rest of Calgary's points. With the loss, the benighted Blue Jackets have gone 2-8 over their last ten.
