DENVER, Nov. 6 (UPI) -- Miikka Kiprusoff turned aside 32-of-33 shots Sunday and the Calgary Flames posted their seventh straight win over Colorado, downing the Avalanche 2-1.

Mark Giordano and Curtis Glencross scored for the Flames, who have outscored Colorado 29-11 during their seven-game streak against the Avalanche.

Semyon Varlamov stopped 21 shots for Colorado, which fell to 1-5-0 at home this season.
