DENVER (AP) - Jarome Iginla scored twice and the Calgary Flames routed the deflated Colorado Avalanche 9-1 Monday night.

Olli Jokinen and David Moss had a goal and three assists each and Curtis Glencross also scored two goals hours after Avalanche star Peter Forsberg again announced his retirement from hockey after two games in his latest comeback.

Anton Babchuk, Alex Tanguay and Matt Stajan also scored and Miikka Kiprusoff had 17 saves for the Flames, who had five goals in the first period. Backup goalie Henrik Karlsson played the final 6:51 and made five saves.

Daniel Winnick scored for Colorado, which has lost eight in a row and 10 of 11. The Avalanche also lost center Matt Duchene to a hand injury late in the second period.
