Gillies, Backlund lead Flames to 5-1 win over Avalanche

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) Michael Frolik took a pass from Mikael Backlund in the slot and fired a shot past goalie Semyon Varlamov just 18 seconds after the opening faceoff. The Calgary Flames didn't let up.

Jon Gillies made 28 saves for his second straight victory, Backlund had a goal and two assists and the Flames beat the Colorado Avalanche 5-1 on Saturday.

"I thought we had a good start," Backlund said. "We needed that, especially at home. We've been struggling with that. It was a very big win for us."
