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.
