DETROIT - Dennis Wideman had a goal and an assist to lead the Calgary Flames past the Detroit Red Wings 4-1 on Tuesday night.

Jarome Iginla, Curtis Glencross and Mark Giordano also scored for Calgary. Mike Cammalleri had two assists and Miikka Kiprusoff made 19 saves before being replaced by Leland Irving to start the third period because of a lower-body injury. Irving stopped six shots.

Johan Franzen scored for Detroit and Jimmy Howard made 19 saves.

Wideman extended Calgary's lead to 3-1 with 24 seconds left in the second period. He beat Howard with a wrist shot from just inside the blue line after Matt Stajan beat Pavel Datsyuk on a faceoff. It was Wideman's second goal this season.

Giordano added a power-play goal late in the third period.
