CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - Chris Stewart scored once in regulation and got the decisive goal in the shootout, Craig Anderson made 44 saves, and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Calgary Flames 3-2 Monday night.
With the shootout tied 1-1, Stewart put the Avalanche ahead on a nifty deke, tucking the puck through the legs of Flames goalie Miikka Kiprusoff. The Avalanche got the win when Calgary's Jamie Lundmark lost control of the puck and failed to get a shot on goal.
It was the fourth straight 3-2 victory for Colorado over Calgary in the season series and moved the Avalanche into a tie with the Flames atop the Northwest Division.
Paul Stastny also scored for Colorado, which has won seven of its last nine road games.
Rene Bourque and Dustin Boyd scored for Calgary.
