The ship is rising but the captain is sinking.

Vancouver Canucks extended their winning streak to four games last night by beating the host Calgary Flames 3-2.

Canucks doused the Flames for the third time in eight days, but Markus Naslund's scoring slump increased to 15 games.

The $6-million Swede hasn't scored since Nov. 28. If goal production dictated captaincy, Trevor Linden, earning just $600,000, would get the 'C' back. The aging ex-leader had his fourth goal in eight games for a 1-0 lead.

Naslund assisted Brendan Morrison's goal, but Alexandre Burrows had the winner with his first of the season. Matthew Lombardi scored a pair for Calgary.

Canucks' last fourgame winning streak ran Jan. 14-21, 2006.

Vancouver hosts the Dallas Stars tonight to begin a four-game homestand. (7 p.m. Team 1040/TSN/TSN HD).
