      Flames score 3 in 3rd to pull away from Wings

      Lee Stempniak scored the winning goal in the third period and added an assist in the Calgary Flames' 5-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night.

      Stempniak broke a 2-2 tie 5:37 into the third on a beautiful set up from Curtis Glencross, who missed the previous two games because of a wrist injury. Glencross wheeled deep into the Detroit zone and zipped a pass to the uncovered Stempniak in the slot for his seventh goal of the season.

      Glencross added his ninth at 9:12, capitalizing on Valterri Filppula's turnover along the side boards. Blake Comeau followed with a goal 48 seconds later to make it 5-2.

      Alex Tanguay and Jay Bouwmeester also scored for Calgary (10-11-4), which won its fifth in a row at home.

      Niklas Kronwall and Filppula scored for Detroit (12-10-5).
