Cody Hodgson on his first night in the bigs:
Vancouver has owned the Stars this year, beating them three times by a combined 15-3 score. Schneider has won the last two games against them.
Overall, the Canucks jump back into sole possession of #1 overall (73 points) and a rather ridiculous +47 goal differential (for comparison, Edmonton has -46 on the season). They have a seven point lead on second-place Detroit and a 16 point lead over
Colorado Minnesota in the Northwest.
Daniel Sedin's two points ties him with Sidney Crosby at 66, two behind Steven Stamkos for the league lead in points. Mikael Samuelsson's goal pushes him into the double digits, the sixth Canuck to notch ten or more goals with about ten weeks left in the season. Ryan Kesler's 28th goal is one better than Daniel for best on the team.
Canucks are back at it tomorrow night in Phoenix.
