Jarome Iginla also scored for the Flames.
1 - Number of NHL goals for Blues Lars Eller, one of the few Danish hockey players in the league. He scored his first in the third period to tie the game 1-1 and end a St. Louis scoreless streak that had stretched more than eight periods or about 171 minutes and five seconds.
3 - Number of goals for Flames captain Jarome Iginla in the past two games which coincides with his coach calling on him to be much better. Iginla had two goals against Dallas Wednesday and a first period tally against the Blues Thursday.
