EDMONTON -- The major switch finally happened.

The results were a success.

Calgary Flames head coach Brent Sutter split up Jarome Iginla and Olli Jokinen for last night's 4-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers.

Iginla was held off the scoresheet as he mainly skated with Daymond Langkow and Curtis Glencross.

Jokinen assisted two of Rene Bourque's goal while making up a trio that included Nigel Dawes.

"It's a fresh look for the guys," Sutter said. "It's something different. I thought Daymond and Jarome meshed pretty good together. Glennie was fine there. With Olli, I wanted to keep Bourque and Dawes together, I thought that was important.

"We were able to play four lines and our defence, for the most part, did a reasonably good job."

Iginla's line was a factor, even if the trio didn't score. Iginla fired a couple of shots on goal and had a couple of others blocked. Langkow assisted Bourque's third-period shorthanded goal.
