The Los Angeles Kings defeated the Calgary Flames on the road on Wednesday night, thanks in no small part to a former Flames legend: Jarome Iginla.

Iginla recorded the 12th Gordie Howe hat trick of his career in the 4-1 win over the Flames, with a fight, an assist and a goal – although he owes a debt to Flames defenseman Mark Giordano for that latter achievement.

Let’s begin with the fight, a brutal affair against the Flames’ Deryk Engelland in which Iggy threw some absolutely bombs:

Now let’s get to the goal, for which Iginla received credit even though Mark Giordano is the reason it found the back of the Calgary net:

Whoops.

Iginla would later assist on Jeff Carter’s goal to complete the ‘Gordie.’

Well, if the Flames were going to lose, might as well lose to one of the most beloved players in the history of the franchise, even if he’s in a Kings uniform these days.

Iggy’s the greatest.
