CALGARY, Alberta, Feb. 12 (UPI) -- Jarome Iginla's goal in the third round of a shootout Saturday was the game-winner in the Calgary Flames' 3-2 victory over Vancouver.

Calgary's Olli Jokinen went first in the tie-breaker and scored on Vancouver's Roberto Luongo, but Alexandre Burrows evened it up in the second round with a forehand shot through the pads of Miikka Kiprusoff.

But Iginla quickly put the Flames back in front when he made a series of aggressive stickhandling moves and slid the puck past an outstretched Luongo.

Kiprusoff stopped Mason Raymond on the Canucks' last try and finished with 29 for the game as the Flames kept their Western Conference playoff hopes alive.

Michael Cammalleri and Roman Horak scored to give the Flames a 2-0 lead, but tallies by Cody Hodgson and David Booth evened it up.

Luongo turned aside 16-of-18 shots.
