Canucks continue long trip at Blue Jackets

Vancouver (14-8-2) at Columbus (10-10-3) 7:00 p.m. EST

COLUMBUS, Ohio (Ticker) -- The Vancouver Canucks are hoping an

extended road trip changes their recent fortunes.

The Canucks will look avoid a third straight loss when they

visit the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday.

Vancouver has followed up a four-game winning streak by losing

its last two contests, including a 3-1 setback at Calgary on

Saturday.

The Canucks lead the Northwest Division in scoring with 73 goals

in 24 games, headlined by the Sedin brothers. Daniel Sedin

leads the club with 11 goals and 21 points while Henrik paces

the club with 19 assists.

But both Sedin brothers were held off the scoresheet against the

Flames - the first time that has happened since November 12

against Colorado.

Columbus is coming off a 3-0 win against Washington. Rick Nash

had a pair of goals, including an unassisted shorthanded tally

in the third period.

The Blue Jackets have had trouble converting their power-play

opportunities, scoring a league-low 9.9 percent of the time with

the man advantage.
