Canucks seek retribution in home-and-home finale against Flames

CALGARY, Alberta (Ticker) -- The Calgary Flames brought the
Vancouver Canucks' four-game win streak to a screeching halt.

The Canucks do not have to wait long to exact their revenge
against the Flames as the teams conclude a home-and-home series
on Saturday.

Mike Cammalleri recorded a hat trick before Curtis Glencross
snapped a tie with 6:31 left in the third period as Calgary
forged a 4-3 victory over Vancouver on Thursday.

Captain Jarome Iginla and Daymond Langkow each had two assists
and Miikka Kiprusoff made 27 saves for the Flames, who defeated
the Canucks for the first time in three meetings.

Darcy Hordichuk and Mason Raymond each scored, while Daniel
Sedin also tallied, but the Canucks yielded more than two goals
for the second time in 11 contests.

Vancouver ranks fifth in the NHL, surrendering 2.35 goals per
game, but may have to generate more offense without All-Star
goaltender Roberto Luongo, who is expected back next week at the
earliest after suffering a groin injury against the Pittsburgh
Penguins last Saturday.

Luongo is 11-5-2 with a 2.17 goals-against average and has been
replaced by Curtis Sanford, who has started the last four games
and owns a 3-2-0 record and 2.66 GAA.
