LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Jarome Iginla scored the tying goal on a power play in the second period, Olli Jokinen and Michael Cammalleri connected on Calgary's first two shots in a shootout, and the Flames ended a six-game road losing streak with a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night. Miikka Kiprusoff made 31 saves and stopped two of the three he faced in the tiebreaker. Dustin Brown scored in the first period for the Kings, who are 8-1-6 since Darryl Sutter replaced Terry Murray as coach. Calgary's victory was Brent Sutter's 200th as an NHL head coach. The only other time he and his brother were behind opposing benches was Saturday, when the Kings beat the Flames 4-1 in Calgary. Darryl coached the Flames in 2003-04, when they were beaten in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals by Tampa Bay. Jonathan Quick made 24 saves for the Kings. The Kings opened the scoring at 3:28 of the first period with Brown's 13th goal. Justin Williams got a long lead pass from Willie Mitchell in the neutral zone and carried the puck into the Flames' end before fanning on a wrist shot. But it grazed Jokinen's stick and Brown swept it past Kiprusoff. Calgary had a 5-on-3 advantage for the first 38 seconds of the second period after staggered penalties to Colin Fraser and Jarret Stoll, who was sent off for hooking Mikael Backlund just 3 seconds before intermission. The Kings not only withstood that penalty-kill, but Kiprusoff was forced to stop Brown on a short-handed breakaway with 45 seconds left on the power play. The Flames tied it the next time they had the man-advantage, after the Kings were penalized for having too many men on the ice. Mitchell broke his stick in the Kings' zone and teammate Trevor Lewis handed him his to defend the low slot. But when Jokinen made a cross-ice pass to Iginla, all Lewis could do was make a diving swipe at the puck. He missed it, and Iginla beat Quick to the stick side with a slap shot from the middle of the left circle at 9:15 of the second for his 18th goal. NOTES: Iginla's 502nd NHL goal tied Joe Mullen for 40th place on the career list and put him within one of Peter Bondra's total. ... The Kings have allowed an average of 1.38 goals in regulation over their last 16 games since losing 8-2 at Detroit on Dec. 17. ... The Flames have scored one goal in each of their last four games, one of them in overtime to beat Anaheim 1-0. ... The Kings got only two power play opportunities, the second one when Calgary D Mark Giordano was sent off for hooking Slava Voynov with 35 seconds left in overtime. ... Kings C Anze Kopitar has 14 goals and eight penalty minutes through his first 48 games. In three of his previous four seasons, he finished with fewer penalty minutes than goals. The only players in Kings history to win the Lady Byng Trophy were Wayne Gretzky (three times), Butch Goring and Marcel Dionne. ... Once this four-game homestand ends, the Kings will play 20 of their final 31 on the road. ... Calgary is 7-17-3 when scoring fewer than three goals, and all of the wins have come with Kiprusoff in net. ... Los Angeles had allowed just three goals in 53 short-handed situations over their previous 13 home games. ... The Kings haven't scored more than two goals in any of their last seven home games against Calgary, and have won three of them.
