Calgary 3, Anaheim 1

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - Miikka Kiprusoff made 31 saves and the Calgary Flames scored three power-play goals in a 3-1 win over the Anaheim Mighty Ducks on Wednesday night.

Matthew Lombardi, Daymond Langkow and Chris Simon scored for the Flames.

Andy McDonald had the lone goal for the Mighty Ducks.

Making his seventh straight start and 18th in the last 19 games, Kiprusoff allowed only a power-play goal by McDonald halfway through the first period that tied the score 1-all.

Kiprusoff was perfect after that, turning aside 27 shots the rest of the way to improve to 29-14-7 on the season. He is tied with Marty Turco of the Dallas Stars for the NHL lead in wins.

Langkow's goal proved to be the winner, making it 2-1 at 2:38 of the second.

Controlling the play in the Ducks' end, Jarome Iginla slid a pass across to Langkow near the top of the faceoff circle and he sent a hard slap shot into the top corner over the outstretched glove of goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere.

Calgary increased its lead later in the second at 16:38. Simon stationed himself in front of the Ducks' net and was able to deflect in a point shot from Andrew Ference as the Flames converted their third straight man-advantage chance.

The Ducks entered the game with the NHL's ninth-best penalty-killing unit.

Calgary finished 3-for-5 on the power play.

Calgary assured itself of at least a share of top spot in the tight Northwest Division. The Flames entered the night even with the Vancouver Canucks, who played St. Louis. Calgary moved four points up on the Edmonton Oilers and five points ahead of the Colorado Avalanche, both of which were idle.

The Flames are 7-1-1 over the past six weeks at the Pengrowth Saddledome, where Calgary will wrap up play before the Olympic break by hosting the Blues on Friday night.

Anaheim lost for just the third time in regulation in the past 14 games (7-3-4).

Playing against his former team, Giguere finished with 21 saves and dropped to 15-8-10.

Calgary and Anaheim exchanged power-play goals in the first period.

Lombardi gave the Flames the lead at 6:11, striding to the top of the faceoff circle and neatly putting a wrist shot into the top corner.

The lead lasted less than 4 minutes before McDonald evened it. Teemu Selanne's shot caromed off the near goal post and out the other side of the crease where McDonald put it in the empty net.

Notes: With a five-game homestand following the Olympic break, Calgary does not play again on the road until March 12 in Colorado. ... Calgary C Byron Ritchie (knee) is close to returning after missing 16 games. ... Anaheim is just 1-8-2 against the Northwest Division. ... Calgary is 14-5-2 against the Northwest Division. Against the rest of the Western Conference, the Flames are 11-10-4. ... Calgary LW Mike Leclerc is scoreless in three games since joining the Flames. Including his time with the Coyotes, he has gone 11 games without a goal.
