And the Oscar for best comeback story goes to ... the Calgary Flames.

Just when it seemed the Flames had found a way to lose Sunday's meeting with the Phoenix Coyotes at the Saddledome, captain Jarome Iginla — with his second of the night — tied it up with 1:23 remaining in the third period and Curtis Glencross scored the game-winner just 23 seconds later for the 5-4 victory.

The best news is for the second consecutive night, the Flames refused to roll out the red carpet for their out-of-town guests, notching back-to-back wins at the Saddledome for the first time this season. They're now back to the so-called .500 mark with a 7-7-3 record.

Tim Jackman and Michael Cammalleri also scored for the Flames.

Raffi Torres had a pair for the Coyotes, while Michael Stone and Nick Johnson had singles. Stone, a former Calgary Hitmen standout, received credit for a goal that was booted in by Flames defenceman Jay Bouwmeester.
