Avs get big win in Calgary

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - Ryan Wilson scored his first NHL goal and added an assist, Milan Hejduk got the game-winner and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Calgary Flames 3-2 on Tuesday night.

Cody McLeod also scored and Paul Stastny had two assists to help the Avalanche (13-5-3) move three points ahead of the Flames (12-5-2) for the top spot in the Northwest Division.

Calgary captain Jarome Iginla had his 12th goal of the season - and eighth in his past seven games - and Rene Bourque also scored for the Flames, who had earned points in each of their previous six games.

Avalanche goaltender Craig Anderson made 34 saves, including a pad stop on a point-blank shot by Olli Jokinen with 3 minutes left in the third period.
