Iginla draws closer to milestone, helps Flames nip Jackets in SO

Jarome Iginla scored his 498th career goal in 1 victory over the struggling Columbus Blue Jackets.

Iginla's power-play marker three minutes into the third period tied the game, and moved him within two goals of becoming the 42nd player in NHL history to reach the 500-goal plateau.

He then scored in the first round of the shootout, while Miikka Kiprusoff held steady in net to secure Calgary's fourth consecutive victory. Kiprusoff made 27 saves in regulation.

Steve Mason stopped 25 shots, but the Blue Jackets could only muster a second- period tally from Derick Brassard and lost for the sixth consecutive time.
