The Calgary Flames are having 'two' much fun.

For the seventh straight game to start the season the Flames had a player produce a two-goal game, setting a National Hockey League record.

Forward Daymond Langkow, with his third two-gal game of the season, tallied twice Thursday against the Los Angeles Kings.

Earlier in the week, when Flames captain Jarome Iginla scored two times in Colorado, the Flames set a modern day NHL record with six consecutive two goal games erasing a record set by Pat Lafontaine and Alex Mogilny in Buffalo to start the 1992 season and becomes an official modern day record.

The streak seven-game streak breaks the record  set twice by the Ottawa Senators, once in 1917-18 and again in 1920-21.

To review:
Game 1: Daymond Langkow scores twice against Philadelphia.
Game 2: Daymond Langkow, again, scores twice against Vancouver.
Game 3: Kristian Huselius scores twice against Detroit.
Game 4: Matthew Lombardi scores twice against Dallas
Game 5: Kristian Huselius scores two against Nashville
Game 6: Jarome Iginla scores two against Colorado
Game 7: Daymond Langkow scores twice against Los Angeles.


In Flames history there have now been 293 two-goal performances by Flames players.
