Vancouver (26-20-8) at Dallas (26-20-7), 8:30 p.m. EST
DALLAS (Ticker) — The Vancouver Canucks have seemingly made
their skid a thing of the past.
Looking to extend their winning streak to five games, the
Canucks visit the Dallas Stars on Friday.
Vancouver, which also won four in a row from November 19-24, has
done a valiant job easing the pain of a season-high, eight-game
losing streak. The Canucks also dropped 10 of 11 from January
Since then, they have not missed a beat – and Thursday’s
thrilling 4-3 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes provided more
Henrik Sedin scored a power-play goal to snap a tie midway
through the third period as Vancouver scored three times in the
session to rally to improve to 2-0-0 on its current three-game
Pavol Demitra and defensemen Alex Edler and Mattias Ohlund also
tallied, while Daniel Sedin and blue-liners Kevin Bieksa and
Sami Salo each notched two assists and captain Roberto Luongo
turned aside 25 shots for the Canucks.
Dallas, meanwhile, fell to the Coyotes, 1-0, on Wednesday after
having won seven of its previous eight.
Marty Turco stopped 28 shots for the Stars, who lost in
regulation for just the second time in their last 14 home
In making his 24th consecutive start, Turco set the franchise
record previously held by Cesare Maniago, who started 23 games
in a row for the Minnesota North Stars in 1968-69.
