CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - Mikael Backlund scored for the fifth consecutive game, leading the Calgary Flames to a 4-1 victory over the Colorado Avalanche 4-1 on Wednesday night.
 
Alex Chiasson had a goal and an assist and Kris Versteeg and Johnny Gaudreau also scored for Calgary. Mark Giordano, TJ Brodie and Sean Monahan had two assists each.
 
Brian Elliott's bid for his first shutout of the season ended when Patrick Wiercioch scored with 1:25 left in the third period. Elliott finished with 17 saves to win his fifth straight start and improve to 8-9-1.
 
Calvin Pickard stopped 33 shots for the Avalanche.
 
Backlund made it six goals in his last five games with 2:40 left in the second period for a 2-0 lead. Giordano's shot was stopped by Pickard but the rebound popped into the slot where Backlund buried his team-leading 12th of the season.
