Flames get quick start, throttle Red Wings

– Jarome Iginla scored his first goal of the season and Dennis Wideman had a goal and an assist to lead the Calgary Flames past the Detroit Red Wings 4-1 on Tuesday night.

Curtis Glencross and Mark Giordano also scored for Calgary. Mike Cammalleri had two assists and Miikka Kiprusoff made 19 saves before being replaced by Leland Irving to start the third period because of a lower-body injury. Irving stopped six shots.

Johan Franzen scored for Detroit and Jimmy Howard made 19 saves. Howard also stopped Iginla on a penalty shot.

Wideman extended Calgary’s lead to 3-1 with 24 seconds left in the second period. He beat Howard with a wrist shot from just inside the blue line after Matt Stajan beat Pavel Datsyuk on a faceoff. It was Wideman’s second goal this season.

Giordano added a power-play goal late in the third period.

Calgary led 2-0 after the first.

PENGUINS 4, ISLANDERS 2: In Uniondale, N.Y., James Neal staked Pittsburgh to an early lead, and Marc-Andre Fleury and the rest of the Penguins then held on when New York suddenly stormed back in the third period just as it seemed they would be shut out at home for the second straight game.

DEVILS 3, RANGERS 1: In Newark, N.J., David Clarkson scored twice and set up New Jersey’s other goal, and Pat Elias matched his career best with three assists to lead the Devils in their first meeting with New York since last spring’s Eastern Conference finals.

The Devils won that series in six games, and they still had the Rangers’ number in getting 24 saves from Martin Brodeur.

MAPLE LEAFS 3, CAPITALS 2: In Washington, James Van Riemsdyk scored his fifth and sixth goals of the season while Korbinian Holzer scored on just the fourth shot of his NHL career to lead Toronto.

KINGS 4, BLUE JACKETS 2: In Columbus, Ohio, Mike Richards provided late insurance with his first goal of the season and Jonathan Quick stopped 18 shots to lead Los Angeles.

Anze Kopitar, Jeff Carter and Slava Voynov also scored for the reigning Stanley Cup champions.

FLYERS 2, LIGHTNING 1: In Philadelphia, Tom Sestito scored his first two goals in three years and Ilya Bryzgalov made 21 saves, shutting down the NHL’s highest-scoring team to help Philadelphia win its second straight game

SENATORS 4, SABRES 3: In Ottawa, Chris Neil scored what turned out to be the game-winning goal in the second period and Craig Anderson made 20 saves as Ottawa snapped a two-game losing streak.

PREDATORS 6, BLUES 1: In St. Louis, Martin Erat had a goal and two assists, Pekka Rinne stopped 31 shots and Nashville broke out of a season-long scoring slump with three first-period goals.

JETS 3, PANTHERS 2 OT: In Winnipeg, Bryan Little scored on a power play in overtime to lift Winnipeg.
