Tampa Bay (20-29-12) at Vancouver (30-22-8), 10:00 pm EST
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) — The Vancouver Canucks
hope a return home can help them regain their scoring touch.
Daniel Sedin and the Canucks will kick off a four-game homestand
against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday.
Vancouver had a four-game winning streak snapped Tuesday,
suffering a 3-0 loss to the Montreal Canadiens. The Canucks
have still won eight of their last 10 contests, climbing to
fifth place in the Western Conference.
Sedin, who leads the club with 25 goals and 59 points this
season, has recorded a point in all six career meetings with the
Tampa Bay’s three-game road trip through Western Canada got off
to a rough start. Cory Murphy scored two goals during Tuesday’s
5-3 loss to the Edmonton Oilers.
The Lightning, who will visit the Calgary Flames on Sunday, have
lost five of their last six contests. Tampa Bay is 3-8-2 over
its previous 13 games.
