CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - Chris Stewart scored once in regulation and added the deciding goal in the shootout and Craig Anderson made 44 saves as the Colorado Avalanche beat the Calgary Flames 3-2 Monday night.

After Colorado's Milan Hejduk and Calgary's Olli Jokinen each scored in the shootout, 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 Colorado's fourth straight 3-2 victory over Calgary in the season series and moved the Avalanche into a tie with the Flames atop the tightly contested 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, which dropped to 6-2-1 in its last nine.

Although he didn't need to make the stop on the final shootout attempt, Anderson was the story on this night as the Flames outshot the Avalanche 46-21, including 17-4 in the third period and 5-1 in overtime.

Flames captain Jarome Iginla was involved in several of the close calls in the third period. In one short stretch, the Flames captain slid a puck under Anderson but wide of an open net, then set up Daymond Langkow's one-timer that Anderson deflected away, and later he was stopped on a breakaway as he bowled his way to the net but could not jam the puck past Anderson.

Iginla drew a hooking penalty on the breakaway and with the extra man Calgary threatened but Anderson added a couple more spectacular stops, including a blocker save on Mark Giordano.

Calgary failed to convert on a 18-second 5-on-3 advantage it got in overtime when Stastny took a delay of game penalty.

Despite all the chances, the Flames finished 0-for-4 on the power play and are now 0-for-14 over the past five games.

Calgary led 2-0 in the second period when the Avalanche struck for two goals three minutes apart to pull even.

Kiprusoff was screened both times and didn't see either of the shots. Stastny's 10th goal came on an Avalanche power play and made it 2-1 at 13:16. John-Michael Liles' slapshot deflected off Stastny in tfront of the net and found the top corner.

Stewart notched his 14th goal at 16:17, spinning and flinging a harmless-looking wrist shot towards the net that slipped inside the goalpost with Kiprusoff's sight blocked out by Stastny and Cory Sarich battling in front.

NOTES: The Avalanche does not return to action until Saturday night when the club hosts the New Jersey Devils to open up a five-game homestand. ... Colorado captain Adam Foote (ankle) missed his second game. ... Calgary LW Fredrik Sjostrom was a healthy scratch for the second game in a row and remains at 399 career NHL games. ... Iginla is three assists away from tying Theo Fleury for second on the Flames all-time list (466).
