GLENDALE, Ariz. - Miikka Kiprusoff made 23 saves and Todd Bertuzzi and Dion Phaneuf scored power-play goals in the Calgary Flames' 4-1 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday night.

Brandon Prust scored his first goal of the season and Jarome Iginla added an empty-net goal to help the Flames win their third straight game.

Todd Fedoruk scored for Phoenix. The loss was the Coyotes' fourth in five games.

The Flames opened the scoring on Bertuzzi's goal at 3:25 of the opening period. Bertuzzi was the last Calgary player to touch the puck before it deflected off Phoenix defenceman Zbynek Michalek's stick and into the net.

Calgary made it 2-0 when Prust converted a 2-on-1 rush up the ice into his first of the season at 15:03 of the first period.

Fedoruk countered with his first of the season at 16:58.

The Flames regained a two-goal advantage when defenceman Phaneuf scored with the man advantage at 6:31 of the second period. As the puck deflected off goalie Mikael Tellqvist's shoulder and bounced off the crossbar, Phaneuf crashed down the slot, picked up the loose puck and scored on a backhander.

Notes: Phoenix's Olli Jokinen played in his 383th consecutive NHL game, the second longest active streak. Minnesota's Andrew Brunette of Minnesota is the leader. ... Fedoruk has 27 goals in 429 career games.
