Flames Burn Avs 3-0

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - Miikka Kiprusoff made 22 saves, and Curtis Glencross snapped a scoreless tie 8:22 into the third period to lift the Calgary Flames to their fourth win in a row, 3-0 over the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday night.

Kiprusoff earned his first shutout of the season - 27th overall - and his 150th NHL victory.

The go-ahead goal was set up by hard work behind the Colorado net by Craig Conroy and David Moss. Moss ended up with the puck after a battle along the boards and whipped a backhanded pass to Glencross, who one-timed a shot past goalie Peter Budaj.

The Flames went right back on the attack and were rewarded with goals from Rene Bourque and Mike Cammelleri.
