Lee Stempniak scored a power-play goal and added two assists to lead the Calgary Flames to their first win of the season, 4-3 over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday night.

Jay Bouwmeester, Mikael Backlund and Curtis Glencross also scored for Calgary. New Czech acquisitions Jiri Hudler and Roman Cervenka both played well in their debut on a line centered by Matt Stajan with Hudler picking up an assist.

The Flames got off to a bad start to the season with back-to-back home losses last weekend before picking up a point in a shootout loss in Vancouver on Wednesday.

Sam Gagner, Justin Schultz and Jordan Eberle scored for Edmonton, which was outshot 35-20.
