The Canucks seek a seventh straight win Wednesday night when they try to defeat the Flames for a fourth time in a row.
Vancouver (25-8-5) is back home after an impressive three-game road trip. The Canucks beat Dallas, Colorado and San Jose in a four-day span, culminating in a 4-3 victory over the Sharks on Monday.
Alex Burrows scored the lone goal of the third period as Vancouver had 47 shots in completing a sweep of the trip.
“In all areas of the game, I thought we played our best game of the three,” coach Alain Vigneault said. “It was a tough grind out there for both teams and we were able to get it done.”
The Canucks have gone 11-0-2 since their last regulation loss, 3-2 to St. Louis on Dec. 5. They last won seven straight Jan. 16-30.
“It feels good but it seems like we’re never satisfied,” Burrows said. “Whatever happened in the past we forget about it and move on. That seems to work well for us.”
The Canucks may want to remember their past few matchups with the Flames (18-19-3). The Sedin brothers have combined for 15 points in the last three meetings with Vancouver outscoring Calgary 17-6.
Each twin enters with an eight-game point streak against the Flames, with Henrik amassing 14 points and Daniel 12.
The Flames had their four-game win streak snapped with a 5-2 home loss to the Islanders on Monday. They gave up two power-play goals and one at even strength in the first period and never recovered.
Calgary will likely need a better effort on the penalty kill. The Flames allowed three-power play goals Dec. 1 in a 7-2 home loss to the Canucks, who have the NHL’s second-best power play at 24.8 percent.
“We have to have urgency every game,” coach Brent Sutter said. “There can’t be a lack of it. I understand some nights it’s not going to be perfect for you but you have to fight through it, you gotta work through it.”
Iginla has been limited to one assist in his last four games against the Canucks.
