CALGARY - Miikka Kiprusoff provided the goaltending the Calgary Flames and their faithful are accustomed to seeing.

His teammates took their sweet time but eventually managed to make the most of it.

Lee Stempniak broke a deadlock early in the third period for the key go-ahead goal to give the Flames a 5-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings Wednesday night.

Undoubtedly, though, the hero was Kiprusoff, who responded from essentially being benched the previous outing with a 36-save performance while his club was grossly outplayed before the announced Saddledome sellout crowd of 19,289.
