CALGARY, Alberta, March 18 (UPI) -- Cam Atkinson bested Miikka Kirprusoff in a shootout Sunday, boosting the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 2-1 decision over Calgary.

Atkinson, participating in his first shootout, moved to his backhand after a fake and got it past the Flames goaltender in the fourth round of the tiebreaker.

The Blue Jackets' Steve Mason made the advantage hold up with a save on Jarome Iginla -- his fourth of the shootout.

He finished with 28 saves after relieving starter Curtis Sanford and Nikita Nikitin scored for Columbus.

Sanford was assisted off the ice in the first period after suffering an unspecified lower body injury.

The Flames, meanwhile, sustained their second straight loss as they struggle to make the Western Conference playoff field. They remained in 11th place in the West, 11 points out of the post-season field.

Matt Stajan scored and Kiprusoff made 17 saves for Calgary.
