(Sports Network) - The Vancouver Canucks will shoot for a sweep of the Calgary Flames when the Northwest Division rivals wrap up a home-and-home series this evening at General Motors Place.

Vancouver put an end to its three-game losing streak and dealt the Flames their first home defeat in nearly two months behind a stellar performance from Roberto Luongo on Tuesday. The netminder stopped 26 of the 27 Calgary shots he faced to lead the Canucks to a much-needed 3-1 victory.

Daniel Sedin paced Vancouver's offense with a pair of goals and Trevor Linden also tallied in the triumph.

David Moss had the only marker for Calgary, which had ripped off a franchise- record 10 consecutive victories at the Saddledome and hadn't lost at home since a 4-2 setback to Washington on October 30. Miikka Kiprusoff registered 25 saves in defeat.
