Dennis Wideman had a goal and two assists and Jonas Hiller made 27 saves for the shutout and the Calgary Flames earned a 4-0 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday.

Markus Granlund had a pair of goals and Joe Colborne also scored for the Flames, who have won three of their past four. Calgary is also holding on to one of the final playoff positions in the Western Conference with just three games to play.

The Oilers have lost three in a row and were swept in their five-game season series against the Flames.

Karri Ramo started in net for Calgary, but appeared to pull a muscle in his left leg just 58 seconds into the game and had to be helped off the ice. Jonas Hiller came off the bench in relief.
