The old adage is to just stick with it.

Calgary Flames assistant captain Curtis Glencross did the exact opposite.

After he couldn’t buy a goal — couldn’t buy a point, even — on Calgary’s five-game road-trip to warmer climes, the 32-year-old left-winger dusted off some old weapons and finally ended his drought with a wicked one-timer in the third period of Saturday’s 5-2 victory over the Washington Capitals.

“I switched back to my old faithful sticks last night. Tried something different and it worked,” Glencross said after Sunday’s practice at the Saddledome.

“I came home off the road-trip and I grabbed my old sticks out and grabbed two new pairs of hockey gloves out. The other ones are going in the garbage.”

The other ones were, apparently, out of magic.
