The Calgary Flames played one of, if not their best, first period of the season and carried over some good things into the second period, and it was enough to take a 4-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday night.  While their final frame wasn't the picture of perfection, they staved off a chasing opponent and closed out their third win of the season.  With two games to go on a six game homestand, it was a big win for the Flames.
