Colorado Avalanche 3, Calgary Flames 2

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -Wojtek Wolski broke a tie at 5:31 of the third period and Craig Anderson made 30 saves to help the Colorado Avalanche reach 10 victories with a 3-2 win over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night.

Wolski scored his team-high eighth goal, beating Miikka Kiprusoff with a wrist shot from the slot. Anderson has started all 13 games for Colorado (10-1-2).

Calgary's Jarome Iginla and Olli Jokinen scored 15 seconds apart early in the first period, but David Koci and David Jones countered for Colorado later in the frame.

Colorado has won four straight games to set a team record for victories in the month of October. The Avalanche also improved to 6-1-2 on the road.

Kiprusoff made 11 saves for Calgary.

Koci made it 2-1 at 7:53 of the first, deflecting Brett Clark's point shot past Kiprusoff for his first goal of the season and second in 76 career games.

The Avalanche tied it with 3:22 left in the period, scoring on a mad scramble in front of the net, a sequence that was set up by a shot on goal by rookie Ryan O'Reilly. Kiprusoff could not contain the rebound and Jones eventually fired in his third goal.

Iginla opened the scoring at 55 seconds, beating Anderson on a low harmless looking wrist shot from 40 feet out that was deflected and found an opening just inside the post.

Just 15 seconds later, Jokinen's centering pass from the corner glanced off the skate of a Colorado defenseman and past Anderson.

NOTES: Wolski had two goals Tuesday night in the Avalanche's 3-0 victory in Edmonton. ... Team Canada general manager Steve Yzerman attended the game.
