CALGARY, AB -- Loui Eriksson had a short-handed goal and added an assist in regulation, then scored in a shootout in the Dallas Stars' 3-2 victory over the Calgary Flames on Sunday night.

Jamie Benn scored on Dallas' first attempt in the shootout, and Eriksson connected on the second.

Michael Ryder added a power-play goal, and Kari Lehtonen made 36 saves and assisted on Eriksson's goal. The Stars have climbed to seventh in the Western Conference, going 6-0-1 in their last seven games.

Curtis Glencross and Jarome Iginla scored for Calgary. The Flames have lost two straight and three of their past four. By gaining a point, they are three points behind San Jose for the eighth and final playoff berth in the Western Conference.

Miikka Kiprusoff, who received a rare night off Friday when Leland Irving was in net for Calgary's 3-2 loss at Anaheim, stopped 38 shots.

Just past the 4-minute mark in the first period, the line of Iginla, Alex Tanguay and Michael Cammalleri hemmed the Stars into their own zone and produced several good scoring chances. Lehtonen turned aside consecutive shots by Tanguay, Cory Sarich, Cammalleri and Iginla to keep the game scoreless.

During a power play for Calgary, Lehtonen then stopped Iginla's slap shot and also denied Cammalleri from swatting in the rebound.

At the other end of the ice, Kiprusoff made a nice glove grab to snag a shot by Radek Dvorak.

A short time later, Kiprusoff turned over the puck to Eriksson behind his net. Eriksson sent the puck out to the slot, but Kiprusoff was able to get back into position to deny Mike Ribiero's scoring attempt.

Early in the second period, Calgary forward Lance Bouma cut hard to the net and directed a shot on goal that Lehtonen turned aside. Bouma was then hit hard into the end boards by Dallas defenseman Sheldon Souray. Bouma struggled to get to his feet, immediately went to the dressing room and didn't return to the game.

Glencross opened the scoring at 7:18 of the second with his 22nd goal, tapping in a great behind-the-back feed from linemate David Moss.

With the Flames on a power play, Eriksson took a pass from Steve Ott, skated into the Calgary zone and deked around Tanguay before lifting a perfect backhand shot over Kiprusoff's blocker for his 22nd goal.

Eriksson then set up Ryder for a power-play goal late in the second period to put Dallas up 2-1. It was Ryder's 28th goal of the season.

The Flames had a chance to tie it early in the third period when Stars defenseman Stephane Robidas fell in the neutral zone to give Iginla a clear-cut breakaway. While Iginla failed to capitalize on the scoring attempt, he had a power-play goal a short time later when he redirected a behind-the-back feed from Cammalleri past Lehtonen. It was Iginla's 25th of the season.

Early in overtime, Lehtonen turned aside shots by Calgary defensemen Jay Bouwmeester and T.J. Brodie.

Then with Cammalleri in the penalty box for hooking, Kiprusoff made a great glove grab to stop a point shot by Souray. Kiprusoff then slid across his crease to make a chest save to stop a shot off the stick of Ryder.

In the shootout, Benn and Eriksson scored, while Lehtonen stopped Jokinen, and Tanguay hit the post.

STAT OF THE NIGHT
In a completely uncharacteristic fashion, Flames goaltender Miikka Kipruosoff was charged with 3 giveaways. The Flames all-time leader in wins is usually rock solid when it comes to playing the puck.
