(Sports Network) - The Vancouver Canucks try to maintain their recent string of success against the Calgary Flames when the Northwest Division rivals square off tonight at the Pengrowth Saddledome.

Vancouver has won three consecutive games, a streak which began with a home- and-home sweep of the Flames from December 26-27. The Canucks then routed Edmonton by a 6-2 count on Saturday behind a pair of two-goal efforts from Mattias Ohlund and Daniel Sedin.

Jan Bulis and Sami Salo also scored for Vancouver and Henrik Sedin contributed a pair of assists. Goaltender Roberto Luongo recorded his first career win in Edmonton by stopping 35-of-37 shots.

Daniel Sedin has now recorded a goal in four straight games and has six markers and three assists over that span.

Calgary has since rebounded from those back-to-back defeats to Vancouver, as the Flames have registered victories over Los Angeles and Edmonton to kick off their current six-game homestand.

On Sunday, Jarome Iginla had a goal and two assists to lead Calgary to a 4-2 triumph over the Oilers at the Saddledome.
