Recap

Curtis Glencross scored once and added three assists as the Calgary Flames used a four-goal first period to chase Martin Brodeur and cruise to a 6-3 victory over the visiting New Jersey Devils on Tuesday.

The Flames received three goals from their defense corps as they won their second straight following a five-game losing skid.

Calgary wasted little time getting to Brodeur, scoring twice on their opening five shots to chase the future Hall of Famer from the net.

Jay Bouwmeester opened the floodgates at 5:54, and fellow blue liner Cory Sarich extended the lead just 1:38 later on a slap shot from the right circle that beat Brodeur to the stick side.

Replacement netminder Johan Hedberg didn't fare much better. Glencross gave Calgary a 3-0 lead shortly after Hedberg entered the game with his ninth goal in the last 12 games. T.J. Brodie made it a rout with a goal just five seconds into a Flames' man advantage.

Ilya Kovalchuk put New Jersey on the board 14:48 into the second period, but Lee Stempniak restored Calgary's four-goal edge less than two minutes later.

Adam Henrique added a shorthanded goal for the Devils late in the period, while New Jersey's Patrik Elias and Calgary's Jarome Iginla - both of whom celebrated major career milestones last week - exchanged third-period goals to round out the scoring. Iginla added two assists in the win.
