Bertuzzi Lifts Flames To First Win

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - Todd Bertuzzi scored twice and the Calgary Flames hung on for a 5-4 win over Colorado, their first of the season.

Jarome Iginla scored short-handed at 7:23 of the third period gave the Flames a 4-3 lead. Four minutes later, Calgary went ahead by two when Iginla's shot from the right wing was kicked out right to Bertuzzi, who slapped the rebound into the open side.

The Avalanche got within one just 18 seconds later when Ben Guite's 60-foot one-hop wrist shot was muffed by Miikka Kiprusoff.
