ST. PAUL, Minn., March 22 (UPI) -- Devin Setoguchi scored the only goal of the shootout in the fourth round Thursday, finishing off a Minnesota comeback that gave the Wild a 3-2 win over Calgary.

Minnesota came from two goals behind to win its second straight. The Flames lost their fourth in a row but earned a point in their bid to make the playoffs. They began the night two points out of a post-season position.

Lee Stempniak and Anton Babchuk scored power-play goals for the Flames in the game's first 22 minutes, but Minnesota came back to tie it on scores from Dany Heatley and Darroll Powe.

Powe's goal was scored with 7:37 to play in regulation.

Josh Harding made 27 saves before stopping all four shots he saw in the shootout. Miikka Kiprusoff turned aside 28-of-30 shots for the Flames.
