Winnipeg, MB, Canada (4E Sports) - Goaltender Jonas Hiller stopped 30 shots to lead the Calgary Flames to a 4-1 victory over the slumping Winnipeg Jets Sunday at MTS Centre.

With the win, the Flames (4-3-0) wrapped a six-game road trip with a 4-2-0 mark, including wins over the Blackhawks, where Hiller stopped 50 shots, and the Nashville Predators.

Dennis Wideman, Johnny Gaudreau, Mason Raymond and TJ Brodie scored for the Flames.

Mark Scheifele scored while goaltender Ondrej Pavelec stopped 24 shots for the Jets (1-4-0), who produced just two goals during their four-game losing streak.

The Flames used 12 first-period saves from Hiller to weather Winnipeg's early attack before rolling off three second-period goals in a 6:42 span to break the game open.

Scheifele scored his first goal of the season off a cross-slot feed from Blake Wheeler 9:32 into the game for a 1-0 Jets lead.

However, the Flames used Jets defenseman Paul Postma's turnover to tie the game 6:12 into the second period. Matt Stajan delivered a pass to the high slot, where Wideman directed a low wrist shot past Pavelec.

Four minutes later, Gaudreau ended Winnipeg's season-opening streak of 18 consecutive successful penalty kills by beating Pavelec with a wrap-around move at 10:12 for a 2-1 Calgary lead.

Raymond increased the Flames' lead to 3-1 with his fifth goal on a wrist shot past Pavelec's glove hand at 12:54 before Brodie made it 4-1 with a shot under the cross bar 3:18 into the third period.
