DENVER (AP) - A magnificent March means the Colorado Avalanche will have something to play for in April.

Colorado kept its thin playoff hopes alive Saturday, beating the Minnesota Wild 2-1 behind Peter Budaj's record-tying 10th win in March.

The Avalanche also tied a team mark with 11 wins in a month, first accomplished in January 2004.

"These are desperation times," said rookie Paul Stastny, whose power-play goal in the second period capped Colorado's comeback. "It has loosened us up. We sure aren't nervous. We get down a goal and feel like we can come back, and have."

Colorado is five points behind Calgary for the last Western Conference playoff spot with four games remaining. The Flames were to play at Vancouver on Saturday night and host Colorado on Tuesday.
