ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Jarome Iginla scored early and set up Curtis Glencross' go-ahead goal late with a botched shot that became a pass, and the Calgary Flames hung on to beat the Minnesota Wild 4-3 on Sunday for their third straight victory.

Glencross has a goal in seven straight games for the Flames, who moved into a tie for eighth place with the Colorado Avalanche in the Western Conference with 76 points. They're 4-1-1 in six games this month, and Iginla has six goals and five assists in that span.

Sven Baertschi scored his first career goal to put the Flames up 2-0 early in the third period, but Erik Christensen scored twice for the Wild in less than 21/ minutes to tie it.
