Recap


Flames 4, Red Wings 1
: Captain Jarome Iginla scored his first goal of the season and defenseman Dennis Wideman had a tally and an assist as visiting Calgary stunned Detroit to earn its second win of the season.

Curtis Glencross and blue-liner Mark Giordano each scored on the power play for Calgary, which entered with an NHL-low four points. Miikka Kiprusoff stopped 19 shots before leaving at the end of the second period with a lower-body injury.

Johan Franzen scored the lone goal for the Red Wings, who saw their three-game home winning streak come to an end.

Iginla opened the scoring 3:24 into the game by burying a rebound in close after Detroit goaltender Jimmy Howard was unable to control Alex Tanguay’s shot. The Flames doubled their lead midway through the period when Glencross converted a long pass from Mike Cammalleri.

Franzen got one back for the Red Wings on a power play at 12:37 of the second period, beating Kiprusoff with a backhand shot. But Wideman made it 3-1 just 24 seconds before the session ended, and Giordano closed out the scoring in the third.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Backup G Leland Irving replaced Kiprusoff to start the third period and stopped all six shots he faced. … Flames C Jiri Hudler managed just one shot on goal in his first trip back to Detroit since signing with Calgary this offseason. Hudler spent his first seven seasons with the Red Wings. ... Detroit outshot Calgary 26-23.
