DENVER (AP) - Miikka Kiprusoff stopped 34 shots, Alex Tanguay had a goal and an assist, and the Calgary Flames boosted their postseason chances with a 2-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday night.
Olli Jokinen also scored, and the Flames moved to within one point of the eighth-place Chicago Blackhawks, which lost 2-0 to Tampa Bay on Sunday. The Blackhawks have played two fewer games than the Flames.
Peter Budaj made 34 saves, and Milan Hedjuk scored for Colorado, which has won only four times in 29 games.
