Yes, the Calgary Flames let a two goal slip on Monday night, but they were able to pull out two points at home.  Thanks to a Jarome Iginla overtime winner, the Flames were 3-2 winners over the Columbus Blue Jackets to give them points in back to back games.  The Flames have moved out of the Western Conference basement and get two days off before their next game on Thursday.
