CALGARY, Alberta (Ticker) -- The Calgary Flames hope this month

goes as well as November ended.

Before heading on a four-game road trip, the Flames attempt to

win their fourth consecutive contest when they host the Dallas

Stars on Tuesday.

Miikka Kiprusoff made 17 saves as Calgary posted a 3-1 victory

over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday.

Daymond Langkow scored a power-play goal and David Moss and

Matthew Lombardi also tallied for the Flames, who swept their

home-and-home series with the Canucks and won for the fifth time

in six contests.

Calgary also handed Vancouver its first regulation loss in 11

contests with a 4-3 win Thursday.

The Flames' streak will be challenged by the Stars, who are

showing signs of climbing out of their prolonged slump. Dallas

went just 4-6-2 during November but have won two of its last

three games.

The Stars, who advanced to the Western Conference finals last

season, owns the worst record in the conference.

Mike Modano scored a power-play goal to snap a tie with 2:21

remaining in the third period as Dallas recorded a 4-3 triumph

over the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday.
