Jarome Iginla has dominated the headlines of late. And rightfully so. Hitting 1,000 points in dramatic fashion will garner a little attention. Under slightly different circumstances, Alex Tanguay would be a major story. With the Calgary Flames clinging to their playoff hopes, the talented winger has put up some big numbers and has come through at key times. The 31-year-old potted a pair of goals and seven points in the last three tilts. The game before that, he potted the shootout winner to complete an unlikely, season-saving comeback over the Oilers. Still, he's fine with Iginla hogging the spotlight. "I'm fine with where I'm at," Tanguay said with a smile. "When you sign as a player, you want to help your team and put yourself in a position to be a contributor. "That's all I'm trying to do. I've been enjoying my situation here." Tanguay has made no secret of the fact he loves playing on a line with Iginla. It was the reason he signed a bargain-basement, one-year deal for US$1.7 million. It's paid off huge for the Flames and for the player, who already has 65 points this season.
Tanguay's been tremendous
