Todd Bertuzzi scored the only goal in the shootout, and Miikka Kiprusoff turned aside all three Edmonton shooters in the Calgary Flames' 3-2 victory over the Oilers on Saturday night.
With Kiprusoff on the bench for extra attacker, the Flames tied it with 1:05 to play when Matthew Lombardi blasted a shot past Dwayne Roloson.
Jarome Iginla also scored in regulation to help the Flames win for fourth time in their last five games.
Erik Cole and Ales Hemsky scored for Edmonton. The Oilers lost their third in a row, but picked up a point to remain tied with Anaheim for eighth place in the tight race for the eight Western Conference playoff spots.
Edmonton opened the scoring with 7 1/2 to go in the opening period. Shawn Horcoff made a nice backhand pass through traffic to get the puck to Cole with space, and Cole beat Kiprusoff high to the stick side for his 14th of the season.
The Flames had their share of first-period opportunities, none better than with just over a minute remaining when Roloson came across with a quick kick save to stop Michael Cammalleri at the side of the net.
Calgary drew even with 3 minutes to play in the second period. Cory Sarich faked a shot before passing to Iginla, who swatted his 22nd into a wide open net with Roloson frozen on the play.
Edmonton regained the lead 1:46 into the third period when Horcoff fed Hemsky on the right hand side and his quick shot seemed to surprise Kiprusoff. It was Hemsky's team-leading 19th goal of the season.
Notes:@ Roloson made his 15th consecutive start for the Oilers since Mathieu Garon was traded to Pittsburgh on Jan. 17. ... The Flames called up Jamie Lundmark and Kyle Greentree from Quad City of the American Hockey League.
