Flames Beat Blackhawks
CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -- Curtis Glencross had two goals and an assist to pace the Calgary Flames to a 5-2 win over the visiting Chicago Blackhawks on Friday.

The season-high five-goal output was a relief for the Flames after they managed just one goal in five of their previous eight.

Calgary improved to 5-0 when scoring four or more goals. Lee Stempniak, Rene Bourque and Paul Byron also scored for the Flames.

Defenseman T.J. Brodie, called up from the AHL on Nov. 9, got his first NHL point by assisting on Stempniak's goal.

Viktor Stahlberg and Marian Hossa had the Blackhawks' goals. Miikka Kiprusoff made 30 saves on 32 shots for the win.
