(Newser) – Jarome Iginla scored the winning goal in a shootout to give the Calgary Flames a 3-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild. Iginla has made a habit of tormenting the Wild; he has 41 points against them, including 24 goals, in only 38 games. Calgary goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff had 29 saves in regulation, reports the Associated Press. Elsewhere in the NHL:

Super rookie Patrick Kane continued to his remarkable season with two goals and an assist in the Chicago Blackhawks’ 6-1 drubbing of the St. Louis Blues. Patrick Lalime had 32 saves for Chicago and Dustin Byfuglien had a three-point night. It was the Blackhawks second straight victory since going winless in their previous eight contests (0-6-2).
