Flames miss chance to clinch

CALGARY—Jarome Iginla hasn't decided yet if this will be his final NHL season.

But if it is, he had a stirring final game in the city that was his home for 16 seasons.

Iginla scored his 100th career game-winning goal, added an assist, and also had a fight as the L.A. Kings kept their slim playoff hopes alive with a 4-1 win over the Calgary Flames.

Kyle Larson was second-to-nobody in his home state.

Larson persevered through four late restarts to win at Fontana, adding his second career victory to his overall Monster Energy NASCAR Cup series points lead.
