Road Sweet Road

The Vancouver Canucks have just finished their monumental NHL record 14 game road excursion. Amazingly, they managed to garner over 60% of possible points on the trip.
Over the entire trip they scored a mere two goals more than they allowed yet still went 8-5-1. This all despite the fact that Lunogo was far from his best, he was actually outplayed by back-up Andrew Raycroft.

The 'Nucks were somewhat surprisingly led in goals by Mikael Samuelsson with ten. Ryan Kesler was second with six goals and over a point per game with 15. Daniel led the squad with 17 points and a +9 rating, brother Henrik managed 14 points.

The success of the trip is even more impressive with the fact that the Sedins scored a total of six goals combined. The emergence of secondary scoring is what made up the difference. Four goals from Kyle Wellwood, three from Jannik Hansen and eight points in eleven games for Demitra certainly bodes well for Vancouver as the season winds down.
