DENVER (AP) - Miikka Kiprusoff stopped 32 shots, Mark Giordano and Curtis Glencross each had a goal and the Calgary Flames beat the Colorado Avalanche 2-1 on Sunday night.
Calgary's Alex Tanguay and Scott Hannan each had an assist against their old team.
The Flames got the tie-breaking goal on a power play early in the second period. With Milan Hejduk off for tripping, Tanguay threw a shot to the front of the net. The puck bounced off Glencross and by Varlamov to make it 2-1. It was Glencross' fourth goal.
The Avalanche nearly tied it halfway through the frame when Kiprusoff was out of position on a mad scramble in front of the Calgary net. But defenseman Derek Smith made a save on Gabriel Landeskog's shot at the open net to keep the Flames in the lead.
Kiprusoff made the lead stand up with another strong performance. He made several key saves in the third, including one on Stastny at the doorstep midway through the frame.
The Avalanche pulled Varlamov with 50 seconds left for an extra skater and got quick shots on Kiprusoff. With 15.5 seconds left Hannan was called for tripping but Colorado couldn't get a shot on net during the 6-on-4 power play.
The Avalanche took a 1-0 lead when Stastny scored on a rebound 34 seconds into the game, his fourth goal of the season.
Calgary tied it later in the first on Giordano's second goal of the season. Giordano skated into the Colorado end and wristed a shot around defenseman Ryan Miller with 14:41 left in the period.
Notes: Stastny has 36 points (13 goals, 23 assists) in 32 career games against the Flames, his highest point total against any team. ... Colorado has given up nine power play goals in its last seven games. ... Kiprusoff has won seven straight games against Colorado, including a 5-0 mark in 2010-11.
