Tough night for the captain.

Jarome Iginla has been hot for the Flames lately, but he was ice cold Thursday night against the Islanders in New York.

Looking for his 500th NHL goal, he managed just a single shot on net and was a minus-2 on the night.

While that second minus came on an empty netter for the Islanders, Iginla and his linemates Curtis Glencross and Olli Jokinen were out there for the winning goal, too, giving up an odd-man rush that young Isles star John Tavares took advantage of all on his own.
