Torrid Canucks look for more success against Stars

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

2-31.

Since then, they have not missed a beat - and Thursday's

thrilling 4-3 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes provided more

evidence.

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

trek.

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

contests (11-2-1).

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.
