(Sports Network) - Following nearly 1,150 NHL games, Flames captain Jarome Iginla is on the verge of joining an elite class of goal scorers. Rob Scuderi Penguins Jersey . Capitals sniper Alex Ovechkins recent scoring binge has served as a reminder that the forward will likely join that company sooner rather than later. Iginla looks to secure his 500th career goal while Ovechkin aims to push his point streak to seven straight games as Calgary visits Washington. Now in his 15th season, Iginla pulled within one of his milestone with a goal in Sundays 5-3 loss in Nashville. The former 11th overall pick of the 1995 draft is set to become the 42nd player to reach 500 goals and only the 15th to score them all with one club. Brendan Morrison tallied the 200th goal of his career and Rene Bourque also scored for the Flames, who have lost three straight (0-2-1) following a four- game win streak. They play the sixth of seven straight on the road tonight. Miikka Kiprusoff allowed four goals on 26 shots in defeat. "In the end it was breakdowns and defensive lapses," Brent Sutter said after being denied his 100th win as the Flames head coach. "Defensively we are not where we need to be and its costing us." Ovechkins offense has keyed the Capitals as of late. The top pick of the 2004 draft has six goals and three assists over a six-game point streak and logged his second straight two-goal game in Saturdays 4-2 victory over the Blue Jackets. Ovechkin has 317 goals in 512 career games. Dennis Wideman and Alexander Semin also scored in a four-goal third period for the Caps, who have won three in a row for the first time since they opened the season with seven consecutive victories. "We had some breakdowns and they scored, but we were able to rally there in the third," said Washington head coach Dale Hunter. "We put some pressure on them and kept it going the whole final period." Tomas Vokoun made 35 saves for the win as Washington is now five points back of first-place Florida in the Southeast Division. A surge at home has helped, with the Capitals outscoring their opponents 24-12 while going 5-1-0 in their last six as the host. Behind two goals from Ovechkin and four points by Nicklas Backstrom, the Capitals halted a two-game slide to the Flames with a 7-2 win at Calgary in the lone meeting a season ago. The Caps are 11-2-1 with a pair of ties in the last 16 encounters between these clubs in Washington. Kyle Brodziak Jersey .Manager Manuel Pellegrini made the announcement on Tuesday.Kolarov could miss all three of Citys remaining Champions League group matches. As well as facing CSKA Moscow on Wednesday, the Premier League champion has fixtures against Roma and Bayern Munich as it attempts to qualify for the knockout stages. Brian Elliott Blues Jersey . It was the 18-year-old from Toronto who got on the scoreboard in a losing cause as Tottenham defeated Toronto 3-2 in a soccer friendly Wednesday on the strength of an 85th-minute goal by Andros Townsend. Andrew Wiedeman and Hamilton had scored second-half goals to pull the home side even before a sellout crowd of 22,591 on a warm evening at BMO Field. http://www.thehockeyfanzzonline.com/Tampa-Bay-Lightning-Valtteri-Filppula-Jersey/ . Mats Zuccarello had no complaints when the puck found its way into the net. Zuccarello broke up a scoreless duel between two Olympic goalies with 5:58 remaining, lifting the Rangers to a 1-0 victory over the Red Wings on Thursday night.COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- As the final seconds of regulation ticked off the clock, the sellout crowd was poised to storm the court to celebrate an upset victory in Marylands final regular season game in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Disappointment ensued. No. 5 Virginia forced overtime, forcing the fans back to their seats to see if the Terrapins could rebound from the letdown to pull off an upset against the best team in the league. And that is precisely what happened. Maryland closed out its 61st and final ACC regular season in stunning fashion, outlasting the Cavaliers 75-69 in overtime Sunday to end Virginias 13-game winning streak. "Today wasnt just an ordinary game. It was a lot of things," Terrapins coach Mark Turgeon said. "We always play for Maryland, but today we played for former players, former coaches, all our fans." After blowing a seemingly secure lead in the closing seconds of regulation, the Terps (17-14, 9-9 ACC) never trailed in the extra session in front of an emotional crowd of 17,950 at the schools final home basketball game in a conference it joined as a charter member in 1953. When the final buzzer sounded, thousands of fans raced onto the court to celebrate another unforgettable ACC memory at the expense of one of its biggest rivals. Anthony Gill scored 15 points and London Perrantes had 14 for Virginia (25-6, 16-2), which had already clinched the regular season title and was vying to set an ACC record for most league wins during the regular season. "Not that we felt were invincible, but now we know we arent," coach Tony Bennett said. "So now we address it, and now we get after it." What hurt the most it that Maryland shot 48 per cent and scored 32 points in the paint against the nations top-ranked defence. "I was surprised how our defence didnt execute like we should have down the stretch," Gill said. "We are a defensive team, but we made it too easy for them. Theyre a good team, but we just slipped up." Seth Allen scored five of his 20 points in overtime and Dez Wells finished with 18 for the Terrapins, who will play in the Big Ten next season. Maryland had lost six straight to Virginia, including a 61-53 decision in February that was part of the Cavaliers school-record winning streak against ACC competition. This game, however, was unlike any that preceded it. "The crowd was lively and thats what our guys got to understand, that youre getting teams best shots," Bennett said. Evgeni Malkin Penguins Jersey. "I dont know if all that mattered. It was just a team that outplayed us. The crowd was great for them, the atmosphere was great. But we did get it to overtime and they answered the bell." The end of regulation was a horror show for Maryland. After Jake Layman made two free throws with 4.1 seconds left to put the Terrapins ahead 64-61, Maryland quickly fouled. Malcolm Brogdon made the first free throw and intentionally missed the second before the Terrapins swatted the ball out of bounds with 1.7 seconds to go. Gill caught the inbounds pass in the lane and dropped in an uncontested jumper to force overtime. "Our guys were down. I was down," Turgeon said. "I said, Lets make this the best five minutes of the year. They didnt believe me the first time I said it. But I said it 15 times during the timeout." Overtime began with Allen making two straight layups for a 68-64 lead. The guard then blocked a shot before adding a free throw. The Cavaliers used a layup by Gill to close to 71-69 with 1:13 left, but they would not score again. Despite the loss, Virginia will head into the ACC tournament as a top seed for only the second time. "I feel like we just need to get back in practice and just get back to what we know -- and thats defence and not letting people penetrate," Gill said. Maryland opened the second half with an 11-2 run, turning a one-point deficit into a 45-37 lead. After Wells made two free throws, Perrantes answered with a foul-line jumper. Wells then made a basket and added two foul shots before Allen popped a 3-pointer and Shaquille Cleare added a layup. The teams combined for only two field goals over the next 5 minutes, but Virginia made five free throws during that span to close to 47-44 with 11:34 left. Minutes later, Joe Harris hit a 3-pointer to end a 6-0 spree that put the Cavaliers in front 52-51 with 8:30 to play. Maryland went ahead 62-58 with 2:39 remaining but could not make the lead stand up. Perrantes scored 12 first-half points on four 3-pointers, including one in the closing seconds that put the Cavaliers ahead 35-34. As an expression of gratitude to the lone senior on the squad, Turgeon started seldom-used forward John Auslander, who missed his only shot before being replaced with just under 4 minutes elapsed.
