CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - Jarome Iginla scored his 29th and 30th goals of the season, and Miikka Kiprusoff made 26 saves to help the Calgary Flames regain the Northwest Division lead with a 4-3 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Monday night.

Bryan Marchment and Chuck Kobasew also scored for the Flames, who rebounded from a 3-0 loss in Denver on Sunday to move a point ahead of second-place Colorado.

Joe Sakic, Milan Hejduk and Alex Tanguay had third-period goals for the Avalanche.
