Blue Jackets 6, Flames 4
The Calgary Flames began life without longtime captain Jarome Iginla with a home loss falling 6-4 to the Columbus Blue Jackets.
The Blue Jackets got goals from six different players with Mark Letestu, Vinny Prospal, Matt Calvert, Derrick Brassard, Ryan Johansen and R.J. Umberger all finding the back of the net.
Calgary began what looks to be a long, painful rebuilding process after trading the Iginla, the face of the franchise, to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday for prospects and first round draft choice.
