Canucks Win Again On The Road

Cauncks Win In Motor City

By Derek Jory

Daniel Sedin scored twice, his 39th and 40th goals of the season, to lead the Canucks to a 2-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena in a battle of the top two teams in the Western Conference.

Just over 48 hours ago it looked as though Daniel wouldn’t even make the trip to Detroit, with his wife Marinette overdue and expected to deliver any day.

Luckily Anna, the couple’s third child, was born Monday night; the newest addition, alongside siblings Ronja and Erik, will one day join Valter and Harry, the kids of Henrik and Johanna, to form a feared Sedin starting line-up that will drive opponents crazy all over the ice.

The Sedins, Daniel and Henrik that is, focused on the offensive side of things on this night with Daniel scoring the game’s opening goal 6:31 into the second period to extend his point-streak to nine games (8-8-16), and the game-winner, on the power play, midway through the third. Henrik had the first assist on both goals as the Sedins put on a show.

The Canucks also put on a show winning their sixth straight road game to tie a franchise record with their 23rd road victory of the season and improve the team’s overall record to 48-17-9, two wins shy of the club’s first 50-win campaign. Vancouver now has 105 points to tie a franchise mark set in 2006-07.
