FLAMES (21-21-6) at CANUCKS (29-10-8)
TV -- CBC (HD)
Last 10 -- Calgary 4-3-3; Vancouver 5-2-3
Season series -- Third of six meetings between these Northwest Division rivals. The Canucks have a win in each team's building, routing the Flames 7-2 in Calgary on Dec. 1 behind a Mason Raymond hat trick and winning 3-1 in Vancouver on Jan. 5 as Roberto Luongo made 43 saves.
Big story -- While it would be premature to say the Canucks have hit the skids, they've won only once in five games (1-2-2) since their run of 17 straight games with at least a point (14-0-3) ended with a 1-0 loss in New York to the Rangers. Even still, Vancouver leads the Western Conference by two points over Detroit as play begins Saturday while trailing Philadelphia by one point in the race for the Presidents' Trophy.
Flames -- The offense showed up in a big way for Calgary on Friday, as David Moss scored twice and Jarome Iginla reached the 20-goal mark for the 12th consecutive season in a 7-4 victory over Dallas. After each team had a pair of goals in the opening period, the Flames took control by scoring the first three in the second for a 5-2 lead. The Stars trimmed it down to a goal in the third before Iginla and Moss struck for insurance.
