Flames beat Avs, move into 8th place tie in West

DENVER (AP) - Miikka Kiprusoff stopped 35 shots for the Calgary Flames, who beat Colorado 2-1 on Friday night and moved into a points tie with the eighth-place Avalanche in the Western
Conference playoff race.

Nigel Dawes and Rene Bourque scored for the Flames, who won their third straight.

Calgary has made up ground in a hurry. The Flames trailed Colorado by nine points heading into a game against the Avalanche on March 17. Now the teams are tied with 89 points. The Avalanche have five games left, compared to four for Calgary, and own the tiebreaker based on one more win than the Flames.

Colorado, which got a third-period goal from T.J. Galiardi, is 1-6-1 in its last eight games.
