Colorado 4, Calgary 3

Joe Sakic can no longer be considered human. In a must-win situation last night, he led the Colorado Avalanche with four points, scoring the eventual game-winning goal and assisting on every other goal scored by his team. He now has 95 points on the season, and he's 37 years-old. The man doesn't age.

Paul Stastny was one of the other goal-scorers for the Avs and fellow rookie Wojtek Wolski tallied an assist. Peter Budaj was less-strong in goal than he has been on other nights, but he was still better than the Flames' Miikka Kiprusoff.

The Avalanche had to win, and they did. Now they have to win all three remaining games, and pray for the Flames to lose theirs. It's still not over for Colorado, but they're definitely still not in the clear.
