Canucks hope to snap six-game skid vs. Predators

Nashville (20-23-3) at Vancouver (22-19-7), 10:30 pm EST

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- The Vancouver Canucks

are hoping the All-Star break helps stop their free-fall.

The Canucks will attempt to end a six-game losing streak when

they square off against the Nashville Predators on Wednesday.

Vancouver has continued to slide despite being in a stretch of

playing nine of 10 games at home, acquiring free-agent Mats

Sundin and getting All-Star goaltender Roberto Luongo back from

injury.

Before the All-Star break, the Canucks were dealt a 2-1 overtime

loss in San Jose - their only road contest over a 32-day

stretch. Vancouver is starting a four-game homestand but will

play seven of its next following games on the road.

The Predators are trying to end a three-game losing streak.

Nashville has not scored more than two goals in each of its last

five contests, posting a 1-4-0 record over that stretch.

Coming out of the All-Star break with the second-worst record in

the Western Conference, the Predators are starting a three-game

road trip through Western Canada.
