Miikka Kiprusoff made 32 saves in his return from a knee injury to lead the Calgary Flames to a 4-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday night.

Jarome Iginla, Roman Cervenka and Curtis Glencross (into an empty net) also scored for Calgary, which improved to 4-1-1 in its last six games. Joe Thornton had the only goal for the Sharks, who are 2-6-1 in their last nine. Kiprusoff returned to the lineup after missing 13 games with a sprained knee. The 36-year-old goalie was injured in the second period of Calgary's 4-1 win over the Red Wings on Feb. 5. Calgary went 6-5-2 during his absence.
