CALGARY -- Linemates Joe Colborne, Mikael Backlund and Michael Frolik each had a goal and an assist, and Jonas Hiller made 26 saves to help the Calgary Flames to a 5-2 win against the Vancouver Canucks at Scotiabank Saddledome on Friday.

Mark Giordano and Josh Jooris scored, and TJ Brodie had three assists for the Flames (26-28-3), who ended a three-game losing streak. Calgary moved within one point of Vancouver for fifth in the Pacific Division.

"We don't like those guys and they don't like us," Colborne said. "It's especially nice when you can steal two big ones from them. But it's only two points. It's nice, but we have to string a bunch of those together and we have to do it right away.
