Tonight in the NHL

A number of cool things happened tonight:

1) Jarome Iginla, and Edmonton-area born player for the Calgary Flames scored his 50th and 51st goals of the season tonight in a 3-2 loss to Chicago. Back in the 80s, scoring 50 goals wasn't so uncommon, especially on the Oilers' roster, but nowadays with such strong defensive play in the NHL, it really means something again.

2) The Ducks beat Dallas! Go Ducks Go! ;-)

3) The Avalanche beat the Blues! Go Avs Go! ;-)

4) Vancouver is leading Phoenix in the 1st period. Um... the best I can hope for here is a tie. :-) Failing that, a Vancouver win.

Things are looking a little better for the Oil' tonight. :-)
