Pretty simple formula for success.

Jarome Iginla goes hard to the net, and goals go in for the Calgary Flames captain.

They don't get any easier than the ones the Montreal Canadiens allowed him to score Tuesday night during a sloppy, awfully played 5-4 Flames victory at the Saddledome.

This certainly didn't look like two teams battling for playoff spots. When it's the 15th-place team in the Eastern Conference and the 11th-place squad in the Western Conference, maybe it shouldn't be.

In the first period, Iginla came out of the corner, walked by two defenders and scored on by going around goalie Carey Price.
