(Sports Network) - The Vancouver Canucks will try for their third consecutive victory tonight when they welcome the Minnesota Wild to General Motors Place for the opener of a home-and-home series.

The Canucks' latest victory came Thursday evening against the Calgary Flames. Henrik Sedin's second-period goal was the difference as Vancouver slipped by the Flames, 3-1.

Mattias Ohlund and Brendan Morrison also scored for the Canucks, who have won four of their last six games but haven't taken three in a row since November 17-22. Roberto Luongo stopped 21 shots in the win.

Tonight marks the end of a three-game homestand for Vancouver, which opened the stretch with Tuesday's 5-2 decision over Phoenix. The club is 10-7-0 as the hosts this season.

Minnesota, meanwhile, has dropped two in a row and is coming off Thursday's loss in Edmonton. Matt Greene's first NHL tally triggered a three-goal third- period rally as the Oilers beat the Wild, 3-1, at Rexall Place.

The win catapulted Edmonton into first place in the hotly-contested Northwest Division. The Oilers are two points ahead of Minnesota and Colorado for first place.

Todd White scored the lone goal for Minnesota, which was on a three-game winning streak before this current slide. Manny Fernandez made 22 saves on the night, but surrendered the three late goals on only nine shots.
