CALGARY, Alberta (Ticker) -- Joe Sakic and the Colorado Avalanche are still alive in the Western Conference playoff race.

Sakic netted the game-winner and added three assists as the Avalanche beat the Calgary Flames, 4-3, for their third straight win.

Sakic brought the puck down the right side, cut the net and trickled a shot between the pads of Flames goaltender Miika Kiprusoff to make the score 4-2 with 5:19 remaining in the final period.

All-Star Jarome Iginla tallied two assists for Calgary, which had a six-game winning streak snapped.

Rookie Paul Stastny scored his 27th goal of the season on a power-play tally with 5:22 remaining in the second period for his 73rd point.

Colorado (42-30-7) is five points behind Calgary (43-26-10) for the eighth and final Western Conference playoff spot with three games to play.
