CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Jarome Iginla scored the shootout winner and the Calgary Flames earned an important two points with a 3-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night.

The shootout was tied through two rounds, with Olli Jokinen scoring for Calgary and Alex Burrows replying for Vancouver, which set the stage for Iginla — the Flames' captain and all-time leading scorer.

Iginla put the Flames ahead when he faked a shot, drew it around Roberto Luongo and jammed it in while he was falling. Miikka Kiprusoff then denied Mason Raymond with a pad stop to clinch the victory.

It was a different move for Iginla, who chose to shoot when he got a breakaway with 2 minutes left in the third period but was robbed by Luongo's glove save.
