Don't look now, the Vancouver Canucks are going streaking again.

The Canucks won their second straight game Saturday night at Rogers Arena taking out the Calgary Flames 5-2 to increase their lead atop the Northwest Division to four points.

Alex Burrows and Dan Hamhuis connected for the game's first goal, scored a mere 34 seconds into the first period and, despite a few hiccups, the Canucks cruised the rest of the way.

Dale Weise made it a 2-0 lead 6:57 into the game before the Flames answered back. Calgary outplayed Vancouver for the majority of the frame, yet trailed 2-1 through 20 minutes.

The Canucks got the bounces they needed and Burrows made it 3-1 in the second on just Vancouver's 11th shot; from there Alex Edler netted a power play goal and Henrik Sedin scored a shorthanded empty net goal late to seal the deal.

Cory Schneider was fantastic in his 10th consecutive start making 36 saves, including 13 in the third period.

The Canucks face the Phoenix Coyotes Monday night before beginning a five-game road trip.
